Cyborg exhibition, MILF Plateaux is "resolutely on the side of partiality, irony, intimacy and perversity. [She] is in opposition, in utopia "(Donna Haraway, Cyborg Manifesto, 1985).
Echoing the rhizomatic thought of Deleuze and Guattari, (Mille Plateaux, 1980), MILF Plateaux brings together, without hierarchizing, the unpublished achievements of three artists, a selection of video works and a space of documentation (theory of gender, science feminist fiction, decolonial epistemology, queer literature).
To divert and reclaim stereotypes, to elaborate counter-narrations and alternative narratives: the exhibition makes a dialogue between different means of disrupting, eliminating the mechanisms of domination.
From fantasies to fictions, "MILF Plateaux" invites one to think oneself, to tell oneself out of the paths traced by others.
