Lynn Hershman Leeson is amongst the first and most influential of media artists. Over the past four decades, she has achieved pioneering work in the fields of photography, video, film, performance, installation, and interactive and net-based media art. Her investigation of identity and various modes of surveillance developed into a variety of works. Recently, Lynn Hershman Leeson includes robots, mass communication media such as smart-phones, as well as the latest scientific developments in the field of genetics and regenerative medicine, including 3D bio-printers that create human body parts. In close collaboration with the artist, the ZKM has realised this first comprehensive retrospective.
