A close examination of the relationship between media, art, and the \u201cElectra complex\u201d The feminist counterpart to Deleuze and Guattari\u2019s Anti-Oedipus, Anti-Electra is a philosophy of \u201cthe girl\u201d as a model of contemporary transgressive subjectivity. Elisabeth von Samsonow asserts that focusing on the girl\u2019s escape from the Oedipus complex leads to a fundamental shift in our most common views on media and art.Presenting an interpretation of contemporary technics, Anti-Electra argues that technology today encompasses Electra\u2019s gadgets and toys. According to von Samsonow, satellite drive technologies such as wireless telephones, WLAN, and GPS echo the \u201cpreoedipal constellation\u201d that the girl specializes in. And with the help of the girl, the cartography of overlapping zones between humankind and animals, as well as between humankind and apparatuses, is redesigned through what the book holds as a \u201cradical totemism.\u201d Anti-Electra ultimately offers a new view on gender, the contemporary world dyed by symbolic girlism, and the (universal) girl in critical dialogue with media, ecology, and society.
