presented as an effect and symptom body: as a body that is no longer a fixed unit cut off from the outside world, but rather a body that is permeable, flexible, hybrid and mobile. These unruly cyborgs are primarily women because the female artists who show them are concerned with thinking about the role of women and gender in the information society and suggesting new conceptions of the subject for women. These unruly girls have been feminized, exploited, are posthuman. They are all struggling for life in a world that does not want to allow them space to be human, but rather that forces them to become cyborgs and to behave like cyborgs.
