Saturday, October 3rd from 11:30am - 9pm

PariSoMa is excited to bring you Day 3 of the Arse Elektronika 2009 festival, featuring panels and discussions surrounding the interactivity between sex and technology.

The festival focuses on Sexuality, Genetics, Biotech, Wetware, and Body mods.

From conference organizer Johannes Grenzfurthner at monochrom:

"We will deal with sex, technology and the future. As bio-hacking, sexually enhanced bodies, genetic utopias and plethora of gender have long been the focus of literature, science fiction and, increasingly, pornography, this year will see us explore the possibilities that fictional and authentic bodies have to offer. Our world is already way more bizarre than our ancestors could have ever imagined. But it may not be bizarre enough. "Bizarre enough for what?" -- you might ask. Bizarre enough to subvert the heterosexist matrix that is underlying our world and that we should hack and overcome for some quite pressing reasons within the next century. Don't you think, replicants?"

Post-party to follow from 9pm - 11pm!!!
