Peggy Ahwesh, a media artist, is visiting Sarah Lawrence College to speak. 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.
This event is free to attend and open to the public. For more event details and updates, visit www.sarahlawrence.edu/news-events/events/2017-2018/2018-04-26-peggy_ahwesh_visitin-eid220334.html
