Aleksandra Domanoviç’s sculptures and video expand the scope of conventional technological history by illuminating feminist, cyberfeminist, and Eastern European contributions to the development of science and the Internet. Born in the former Yugoslavia but now based in Berlin, Domanoviç builds on the notion that Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer and that the history of computing is inherently feminist. A recurring feature in her videos, prints, and modeled sculptures is the hand, which functions as a reference to the 1963 Belgrade Hand, an important development in the history of controllable prosthetics. This motif also alludes to early 1990s cyberfeminism, which was invested in the notion of the cyborg as a utopian feminist figure.
