Artist Talk with Zach Blas

  • MFA Photo, Video and Related Media 214 East 21st Street New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

Zach Blas is an artist and writer whose practice confronts technologies of capture, security, and control. Currently, he is a Lecturer in the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Blas’s recent works respond to biometric governmentality and network hegemony. Facial Weaponization Suite (2011-14) consists of “collective masks” that cannot be detected as human faces by biometric facial recognition software. Contra-Internet (2014-2018) explores subversions of and alternatives to the internet and is supported by a 2016 Creative Capital award in Emerging Fields and the Arts Council England.

This event is a part of the Department's Scheimpflug Lecture Series and is free and open to the public.
