How can biohacking and "freak-science" protocols lead to radical forms of knowledge production and collective world-making? This talk dissects the project Open Source Estrogen and its many mutations into artistic interventions, performances, and modes of healing.

Proven through years of researching through the project Open Source Estrogen, biohacking methodologies serve far more than spreading didactic knowledge. These protocols produce an existential knowing in our bodies and environments, leading to collective strategies that may help us out of ecological ruins. This talk describes how biohacking, as a xeno-feminist practice of care, can inevitably lead to a form of world-making, where collectivities can emerge on the other side with a radical breakage from the past.
