Gender and transgender, queer and post-queer mark the new range of visions
on sexual identity at the turn of this millennium. The biological sex has
finally lost its status as a dominant factor in defining a person's
identity. Individual construction of identity has taken its place.

GENDER MEDIA ART, a multimedia CD-ROM, showcases its influence on the arts
and mass media within 12 projects, including work by theorists, writers and
artists using media as video, film, photography and digital media. Their
work focuses on contemporary alter-egoism, queerness and transsexuality.
They give taboos like pornography and violence their own twist and show
their view on the new globalism of the internet and in real life. But more
than this, their work show the aesthetics of an (image) culture in which
stereotypes are past history.

 Artists: among others Lynn Hershman, Sadie Benning, Jennifer Reeder, Debra
Solomon, Sam Schoenbaum, Annie Sprinkle, Daniel Brun, M.M. Serra.
Theorists: Judith Butler, Teresa de Lauretis, Jonathan Weinberg, Darryl
Hill and many others.
