As a member of the pioneering performance art collective Critical Art Ensemble, Kurtz uses art to investigate the social impact and implications of science and technology. The group has investigated topics that range from genetically modified foods to the Human Genome Project, assessing the attendant ethical and political ramifications. Join Kurtz for a discussion of the group's most recent projects at this special program, conceived by SECA awardee Mitzi Pederson. A screening of excerpts from Lynn Hershman Leeson's new film about Kurtz follows.
