In the paper the potential of the dissident’s body figures for the reconceptualization of body materiality and subjectivity are taken into consideration. The desire of marginalized and monster bodies are taken as a productive force, being an emancipation process that is also opening new wider experimentation possibilities in the field of art - photography, film, video and multimedia. The outcome is a process of strategic identification within philosophy and the theory of the emancipation of marginal figures (angles, monsters, twins). Here Haraway’s idea of the cyborg (couplings of animal, machines, and humans) is producing influential political goals, strategic affiliations and terminal identities.
