Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival

Hunterian Art Gallery Lecture Theatre

Donna Haraway is one of the most influential thinkers in the world today. Rooted in feminist and ecological concerns, her ground-breaking work includes ‘A Cyborg Manifesto’ (1985); Primate Visions: Gender, Race, and Nature in the World of Modern Science (1990), The Companion Species Manifesto: Dogs, People, and Significant Otherness, (2003), and most recently Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene (2016). Fabrizio Terranova’s film portrait of Haraway is a playful exploration of her life, influences and ideas, structured through a series of conversations on topics from capitalism to science fiction. Refusing to distinguish between humans, animals and machines, Haraway’s thinking challenges normative structures and boundaries, and insists on the need for new post-colonial and post-patriarchal narratives.

This special screening accompanies The Hunterian exhibition Ilana Halperin: Minerals of New York.
