Transmitted by the Franco-German channel Arte in late April, Neue Kraft, Neues Werk (Transcodeur Express) is a documentary by Ninon Liotet and Olivier Schulbaum on the political use of new media through methodologies that draw on feminist and queer theories. A good compendium of perspectives that give a new interpretation of cultural stereotypes and perceptions of the common everyday use of the machines, revealing paradoxes, and creatively chaotic detournazioni of gender roles. Among the interviews, short and enjoyable, most of which are accessible online, there are those with the seminal theoretical Sadie Plant, with director Shu Lea Cheang, with electronic musicians Electric Indigo and Terre Thaemlitz, and the artists Jenny Holzer, Chris Korda , Netochka Nezvanova and Francesca da Rimini.
