Black Cyborg
or If I Had a Heart for Whom Would it Beat

„But they fed me so many new memories…“ (New Titans #128)

Victor Stone aka Cyborg is one of the few Black super heroes in the DC Comics universe. In the “Teen Titans” and “Justice League” series, he embodies numerous stereotypes and fantasies by ‘white supremacy’ regarding the ‘Black man’. Yet aside from the racist discourses, Victor Stone also represents a specific utopia – he is a cyborg, a literally shining example of a new, technically improved humanity. In “Black Cyborg”, Berliner choreographer Christoph Winkler and African-American dancer-performer and DJ Zen Jefferson reveal the character’s matrix. They deconstruct and translate it into another corporeal symbolism – into a liquid body language.
