Artist and filmmaker
Gia Milinovich is an artist and filmmaker with a background in television and web production. Her interests range from science and science communication to online culture, from the cult films of the 1970s and 80s to British comedy and from Jean Baudrillard to metamodernism. She is currently doing an MA in Fine Art, using time-based media and focusing on Marcel Duchamp’s idea of the infra-thin as it pertains to the digital and analogue worlds. She is a feminist, a mother, and a wife, in that order.
“Having grown up as a tomboy and spent her teens immersed in 1980s queer culture, by her early twenties she believed that feminism was over. Women had achieved liberation. Then she had her first child and the scales fell from her eyes. She saw what our society really thought of women. She made a conscious choice to support women and will not be swayed from that. Biological sex is why complex life exists at all. It is not ‘a social construction’. It is a reality that exists independently of our cultural interpretations of what it is and what it means.”
