For our first event of our 2018 programme, Transmission is pleased to present 'Glitch Feminism' a presentation by Legacy Russell in the Cinema at CCA Glasgow

Glitch Feminism embraces the causality of 'error' and turns the gloomy implication of ‘glitch’ on its ear by acknowledging that an error in a social system disturbed by economic, racial, social, sexual, cultural stratification, and the imperialist wrecking-ball of globalisation -processes that continue to enact violence on all bodies - may not be ‘error’ at all, but rather a much-needed erratum. The glitch posits: “One is not born, but rather becomes, a body.” The digital is a vessel through which our glitch ‘becoming’ realises itself, and through which we can reprogramme binary gender coding. Our ‘glitch’ is a correction to the machine—f**k hegemonic coding! USURP THE BODY—BECOME YOUR AVATAR!
