Lynn Hershman Leeson (*1941 in Cleveland, Ohio, USA) is among 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 works have been shown in over 200 large-scale exhibitions, and constitute parts of noteworthy museum and private collections.

In close collaboration with the artist, the ZKM has realized the first comprehensive retrospective which not only ensures an overview of all creative phases in Lynn Hershman Leeson’s oeuvre but also the most recent productions of this innovative artist.
