Lynn Hershman Leeson is one of the first and most influential media artists. During the past five decades she has done pioneering work in the fields of photography, video, film, performance, installation, and interactive and net-based media art. Hershman Leeson's major themes are the construction of identity, surveillance and control, and life in the age of genetic engineering. Her most well-known series is Roberta Breitmore (1973­-78)--, a fictional character embodied by her and three other women, in part simultaneously. A kind of clone of the artist, her life is staged in real time and space. In her most recent works, Hershman Leeson includes web applications and mass communication media such as smartphones, as well as the latest scientific developments in the field of genetics and regenerative medicine, including 3D bioprinters that create human body parts.Exhibition: Deichtorhallen 14.6.2015-17.1.2016
