We Are The Real Cyborgs
The performance is a collaboration with “The Political Fatties” at the festival “Manifestos for Queer Futures #1 – The Present Is Not Enough”, at HAU Hebbel Am Ufer in Berlin, Germany in 2019.
“We Are The Real Cyborgs” introduces the radical idea that fat bodies are the future. Fatness is often seen as an unwanted addition on top of a fantasized thin body, because it is perceived as a failure in attractiveness, responsibility, productivity. We excel in failure. We get to be enormous, symbiotic, unruly. We are not only surviving, we expand. We, the fatties, are the Real Cyborgs.”
