Charlotte Jarvis – In Posse

Video (46:03): Together with professor Susana Chuva de Sousa Lopes (LUMC) visual artist and feminist Charlotte Jarvis works towards creating viable sperm genetically modified from her own female stem cells. – In collaboration with FutureFest, Charlotte made a film version of In Posse.

Charlotte Jarvis writes, ‘In Posse is a Latin term with a literal meaning of ‘before we are born’. It refers to something which is possible, which has potential, but is yet to be called into existence. In Posse is striving for a form of technological, biological and creative activism. In Posse seeks to use science and art to undermine traditional notions of patriarchal power and to examine the meaning of gender now and in the future.’
