The 3rd WWWave
feminism for the new millenium

"We are a group of women who feel passionately about women's issues, and we decided to put up a site that would reflect the unique view of women's issues and feminism in the generation of women who came of age in the 80's. You'll find historical information that you might not have known, discussion of politics, sexuality, daily life, sports and hobbies . . . and lots more! Feminism is not dead; in fact, it's on the rise again, but in a new form.(...) We offer facts that you probably didn't learn in school; opinions about issues we face at home, at work, and in our relationships; rants about our frustrations-- which may help you identify some of your own frustrations; and solutions for a more woman-friendly world." Take a look at their bookshelf!

Guerrilla Girls
"In 1985, a group of women artists founded the Guerrilla Girls. They assumed the names of dead women artists and wore gorilla masks in public, concealing their identities and focusing on the issues rather than their personalities. Between 1985 and 2000, close to 100 women, working collectively and anonymously, produced posters, billboards, public actions, books and other projects to make feminism funny and fashionable. At the turn of the millennium, three separate and independent incorporated groups formed to bring fake fur and feminism to new frontiers." (This entry is also listed under [gRRRl art, fashion, popular culture, DIY projects]).

Axis, bureau voor de kunsten v/m Oudezijds Watertorenplein
(Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
"Axis, Foundation for Gender and the Arts, was founded in 1997. Axis initiates and organizes projects such as exhibitions, film and video programmes, symposia and lectures in the area of the visual arts (including new media), performing arts, literature, music and mass media. The introduction of the term "gender," which relates the definition of the sexes to their changing context, and of the concepts "transgender" and "queer," broader interpretations of "gay" and "lesbian," marks the new range of visions on sexual identity. In its programming, Axis focuses on the interchange between the development of these theories and art practice, and seeks to show the influence of unconventional views about sexual identity in art. Special focuses of attention are visions of the future (a theme that was raised by the Avatar event, in response to developments in digital culture), commentary on the mass media (discussed in the "F/M on TV" debates on the basis of the rise of the woman detective), and intercultural interactions (on gender and the visual arts in a worldwide perspective, brought together in the web project 'Changing Images')."

F.A.M.
(Belgium)
"De Feministische Anarchistische Madammen (FAM) hebben zich sinds 1997 georganiseerd en komen om de 3 weken samen in Gent. Wij willen ons bezighouden met anarcha-feminisme, dat de strijd van vrouwen voor gelijkwaardige posities nadrukkelijk in een breder kader plaatst. Wij willen het feminisme binnen brengen in het anarchisme, maar ook het anarchisme in het feminisme. Dit doen we door inhoudelijke discussies te voeren en af en toe workshops en acties te organiseren die gericht zijn tot een breder publiek. Enkele thema's die aan bod zijn gekomen : vrouwen in oorlog, verkiezingen, vrije meningsuiting en vrije seksualiteitsbeleving, vrouwenorganisaties in andere kulturen/continenten... Het breder kader waarin we de vrouwenstrijd zien, gaat erom dat we meer dan alleen de onderdrukkende sekseverhoudingen willen doorbreken, of kapitalistische uitbuitingen opheffen. Alle onderdrukkende structuren en alle machtsverhoudingen tussen mensen willen we bevragen."

Digitales
(Belgium)
"Digitales are full days of meetings/participation to share knowledge, skills, experiences, dreams and questioning. They arise from a simple and complex approach : we live here and now. We use new technologies to work, to create, to communicate, for our research, to play, to connect, to learn;
They are a common effort to experiment, to exchange knowledge, thoughts and practices in the world of work and vocational training, of art and academic research, without falling into techno-phobia or becoming techno-fans. We have always approached digital techniques with a critical and creative eye and adopted the women’s movement practices so that our work encourages action directly. Neither conference, nor just a forum, Digitales are continuous days of “work” open to the public and taking place in places of vocational training or of work in Belgium, with people who, are being trained and work there, and with resource people, some local, some not, coming with their tools . Archives (images, sound, texts) are kept online and largely distributed since 2001."

VNS Matrix
(Australia)
VNS Matrix emerged from the Cyberswamp during a steamy Southern Australian Summer, circa 1991. From 1991 - 1997 they presented several installations and public art works in Australia and overseas, working with new media, photography, sound and video. Along with Sadie Plant, they coined the term 'cyberfeminism' in the early 1990's. The impetus of the group was to investigate and decipher the narratives of domination and control which surround high technological culture, and explore the construction of social space, identity and sexuality in cyberspace. The project which they pursued was one of debunking the masculinist myths which might alienate women from technological devices and their cultural products. They believe that women who hijack the tools of domination and control introduce a rupture into a highly systematised culture by infecting the machines with radical thought, diverting them from their inherent purpose of linear topdown mastery.” http://lx.sysx.org/vnsmatrix.html
