“From one perspective, a cyborg world is…about the final appropriation of women’s bodies in a masculinist orgy of war. From another perspective, a cyborg world might be about lived social and bodily realities in which people are not afraid of their joint kinship with animals and machines, not afraid of permanently partial identities and contradictory standpoints. The political struggle is to see from both perspectives at once because each reveals both dominations and possibilities unimaginable from the other vantage point. Single vision produces worse illusions than double vision or many-headed monsters.” – Donna Haraway

On Thursday April 28 the exterior of Michael Mut Gallery will be transformed into The Lady Cheese Shop. We invite you inside to sample Human Cheese (cheese made from human milk). We welcome you to taste it, or choose to not – we only ask that you please follow your gut. Contained within the space is an exploration of the process of making food from human body product. Three delicious human cheeses will be available (made from the milk of three different women), accented with delectable food pairings inspired by the cultural and microbial terroir of each cheese, created in collaboration with Chef Sarah Hymanson. Over cheese, pairing, and wine, you are invited to consider and discuss the implications of this immodest proposal.
