facial recognition

6:30PM - 9:30PM*
$0-$50 Sliding Scale

Explore mask-making as a queer and feminist resistance practice against emerging forms of biometric facial recognition.  In this 3-session workshop, we will discuss how biometrics, specifically facial recognition software, subjects women and various non-normative, minoritarian persons to precarity and violence. We will also use masks to think about practices of concealment (such as wearing a veil or burqa) that trouble the societal logic that visibility leads to liberation. 

During our first meeting, we will discuss the social and political impact of biometric technologies in global and local contexts as well as imperceptible revolt tactics and feminism through pre-circulated readings.
