JSF DÜSSELDORF: Künstleringespräch with Lynn Hershman Leeson

JSF DÜSSELDORF: Künstleringespräch with Lynn Hershman Leeson

Hershman Leeson’s practice straddles decades of technological and aesthetic, social, and political development. Since the 1960s, Hershman Leeson has shaped artistic discourses on identity and performance, interactivity, cyborgs, surveillance, artificial intelligence, and biogenetics, paving a path for many generations to follow. She has worked with the most significant scientists of our time, bringing art into a complex dialogue with science.


As a professor and critic, Leeson has written extensively on art, media, and politics. Between 1974 and 1978, Hershman Leeson commissioned over 300 artists to present artworks in public spaces as part of The Floating Museum, which she founded to support artists who weren’t able to exhibit within institutional structures. In tandem with artmaking, Hershman Leeson has written and directed six feature films and documentaries, a selection of which will be shown as part of the public program accompanying the exhibition.

On the occasion of the opening of LYNN HERSHMAN LEESON: ARE OUR EYES TARGETS?
