Artists: Lynn Hershman Leeson 林恩·赫舍曼·利森


Lynn Hershman Leeson (Cleveland, USA, 1941) is one of the most influential video artists of recent decades. Her pioneering work critically examines a range of issues including the relationship between people and technology, identity understood as a consumer product, the construction of gender, how surveillance society is being defined, and the personal use of media as a tool for empowerment against censorship and political repression.

First Person Plural, the Electronic Diaries of Lynn Hershman (1984-96) takes the form of a video confessional in which the artist’s personal history is unfolded before the camera to show how the personal becomes political and, consequently, cultural. Her recognition of the dangers inherent to the control of new technologies in the exercise of the individual voice makes it a truly seminal work. This exhibition starts a season which will lend particular attention to women video artists and filmmakers. Lynn Hershman Leeson will be followed by Elizabeth Price, Wendelien van Oldenborgh and Paloma Polo.

Produced by KW Kunst Werke, Berlin, this exhibition is the first in a series of co-productions with one of Europe’s most important contemporary art centre
