Summary
Bringing a lively and accessible style to a complex subject, 'Cyborgs and Barbie Dolls' explores the idea of the 'posthuman' and the ways in which it is represented in popular culture. Toffoletti explores images of the posthuman body from goth-rocker Marilyn Manson's digitally manipulated self-portraits to the famous TDK 'baby' adverts, and from the work of artist Patricia Piccinini to the curiously 'plastic' form of the ubiquitous Barbie doll, controversially rescued here from her negative image. Drawing on the work of thinkers including Baudrillard, Donna Haraway and Rosi Braidotti, 'Cyborgs and Barbie Dolls' explores the nature of the human - and its ambiguous gender - in an age of biotechnologies and digital worlds
