Feature Program
Lynn Hershman Leeson, ‘Conceiving Ada’, 1997, 72′, ShanghART Gallery

In this feature film by Lynn Hershman Leeson, Tilda Swinton plays Ada Lovelace, a 19th-century mathematician considered to have written the first computer program. The film transports her character into the 1990s New York, where Emmy, a computer programmer, is trying to make contact with Ada across time and space. This blend of history and fiction is a powerful example of a kind of 1980s and 1990s feminist filmmaking that seems more relevant than ever in the current context. ‘Conceiving Ada’ is being screened in connection with Hershman Leeson’s solo exhibition ‘Anti-Bodies’ at Haus der Elektronischen Künste.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Lynn Hershman Leeson and Maxa Zoller.
