Lynn Hershman Leeson

Hershman Leeson’s work, more recently focuses on the ethical context surrounding genetics. As a film director she wrote, directed and produced *Strange Culture*, *Conceiving Ada* and *Teknolust*, all starring Tilda Swinton, which were in the Sundance Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival and her ground-breaking documentary *!Women Art Revolution* in 2011 has been screened at major museums internationally, also The Digital Art Museum in Berlin and Siggraph recognized her work with the develop digital art award (d.daa), for Lifetime Achievement Awards. Her retrospective of 2015, Civic Radar, organized by ZKM mediamuseum is currently at the Wilhelm Lehmbruch Museum.
