Lynn Hershman Leeson
Professor Emeritus of Technocultural Studies
In 1999, the ZKM medamuseum cited Lynn Hershman Leeson as the “most influential woman working in new media”. She has worked in photography, video, installation, interactive and net based works. Her 53 videotapes and 7 interactive installations have garnered many international awards. She has had over 200 exhibitions, completed 53 videotapes and 8 interactive installations. Two of her films star Tilda Swinton, Conceiving Ada and Teknolust—which received the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Award, and was released in North Amereican in May.
Her work is included in The Hess Collection, The Museum of Modern Art, The ZKM Mediammuseum and others. A retrospective and monograph is being planned for 2004.
