« Je suis le prototype » : femmes bioniques et empuissancement subalterne

Abstract : Through philosophy and communication science, this article explores the complicated relations between the exposure of prosthetic-bodies and the normative framework of our societies. Using the empowerment as key-concept, we will define these bodies as boundaries bodies, which represent a delicate balance between political emancipation and perpetuation of an ableist vision of the body based on control, performance and techno-fantasy. Our exploratory field research focuses on the exposure - the iconographic and discursive production - of two bionic women: Viktoria Modesta, bionic artist, and Tilly Lockey, Open Bionics’ teenage icon.
