Lynn Hershman Leeson

Artist

Lynn Hershman Leeson is widely recognised for her innovative work investigating issues that are now recognised as key to the workings of society: the relationship between humans and technology, identity, surveillance, and the use of media as a tool of empowerment against censorship and political repression. Over the last forty years she has made pioneering contributions to the fields of photography, video, film, performance, installation and interactive as well as net-based media art. ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Germany, mounted the first comprehensive retrospective of her work in 2014. The catalogue titled Civic Radar will be available November 2015.
