In this article, the authors address the relationship between artistic production and political activism in Barcelona’s transfeminist scene, by reflecting on the first stage of their joint research project, War Machines: Transfeminist Practices of Representation, which maps and interprets the past ten years of transfeminist cultural production there. Transfeminist art practices, the authors argue, offer new strategies that supplement the operational logic of more traditional activisms by also acting in and through creative processes, principally by conceiving the body itself, in relation to technology, as a site for political transformation.
