We are happy to announce the third edition of Speculative Futures: Stuttgart which will take place in the BAR RAKETE of Theater Rampe. Giulia Tomasello, Female Biophilia: Crossing Boundaries As part of the "Speculative Futures" series, this time we will deal with the question: What will happen if Biotechnology will become part of our daily life and primary need? We will discuss the Technology Revolution as a possible practice for self-care, considering science and technological advancements as a guiding vision to educate personal healthcare. Giulia Tomasello will present her project „Future Flora" in this context. Women’s bodies are considered sacred in society. Female sexual pleasure and fertility are the only issues that matter. None of the uniquely female experiences - the development of female sex organs, menstruation, pregnancy, menopause - have a meaning in themselves. The meaning depends on the extent to which a woman sees herself as a free subject rather than as the object of society’s gaze. Breaking Female Taboos and provoking conversations, the project Future Flora aims to celebrate our body’s microbiome, opening the possibility to wear microorganisms in the future and to embrace them as part of our natural well-being. Following Biohacking and DIY procedures, merging biology with health-tech, the female becomes a citizen scientist. Taking care of her own health, she establishes a first relation with her body and what is part of her living surroundings. Our clothes and accessories become the ecosystem that balances our Skin Microflora. ————————————————— Giulia Tomasello is a designer innovating in women’s healthcare combining biotechnology and interactive wearables.
