ASU’s School of Art’s Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series welcomes Kris Paulsen on Thursday, February 1st to discuss her recent work and research.
Paulsen is an art historian, media theorist and associate professor in the Department of History of Art and Film Studies Program at Ohio State University. She teaches contemporary art history with a focus on time-based media. Her research and writing addresses the intersections of art and technology from the 1960s to the present.
MIT Press published Dr. Paulsen’s first book, Here/There: Telepresence, Touch, and Art at the Interface, in February 2017. Her current research project, “Against Algorithms (or The Arts of Resistance in the Age of Quantification)” addresses the logics of quantification and algorithmic structures in contemporary art, culture, and activism.
Her lecture will be held in the Art building on Tempe campus in room 246. Links to her published essays and articles can be found here.
