POSTCENTRAL situates bodies as expanded territories, whose malleable parts might encompass prosthetics, strap-ons, or domestic robots.

As corporeal space is extended outwards by technologies that aim to make life easier, and which support or reshape our bodies, what critical lines should also be drawn to shield us from capitalist incursion? What altered possibilities for sex, reproduction, and desire are simultaneously opened up?

The work of the artists assembled in POSTCENTRAL touches on the question of where “the body” can be found and where it might be heading, with a focus on non-naturalist ideas of women’s and queer bodies as spaces of futurity and potential.
