Katherine Behar will be giving a lecture at 205 Hudson Street on Wednesday, December 19th, at 7pm.

Katherine Behar is an interdisciplinary artist and critical theorist of new media whose work explores gender and labor in digital culture. In contexts spanning automated labor, mandated obsolescence, big data, and machine learning, Behar applies object-oriented feminism into practice in her art and writing. Her work connects feminist and post-colonial histories with a wave of new theories that grapple with the nonhuman object world. This lecture presents examples of Behar’s videos, interactive installations, sculptures, and performances, alongside episodes from media history and popular culture, all of which explore her core notion of being “digitally divided.”
