Peggy Ahwesh—Visiting Artist Lecture

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:00pm-7:00pm Add to calendar

Peggy Ahwesh is one of the most important media artists working today. With a sensibility as much kino-eye as post-punk, Ahwesh’s work advances the legacy of the most adventurous elements of avant-garde cinema into contemporary geopolitics, multimedia experimentation, and discourses of gender & sexuality. Her films and videos present a diverse range of radical innovations across genres and modes of production, from film-essay to documentary, diary and home-movie, appropriation and animation. Ahwesh’s recent videos and media-installations explore surveillance aesthetics and notions of truth through “found animation,” offering poignant, trenchant examinations of the politics of montage in the age of electronic media.
