Description

Queer Discipline Seminar with Zach Blas

—an artist and writer whose practice confronts technologies of capture, security, and control. Currently a Lecturer in the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London, Blas has exhibited and lectured internationally, recently at Gasworks, London; Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore; e-flux, New York; Whitechapel Gallery, London; and Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City. His recent works (Facial Weaponization Suite, 2011-14; Contra-Internet, 2014-2018) respond to biometric governmentality and network hegemony. One of is current projects is Informatic Opacity: The Art of Defacement in Biometric Times, a theoretical study that considers biometric facial recognition as an emerging form of global governance alongside aesthetico-political refusals of recognition, such as masked protest. His work has been featured in Artforum, Frieze, Art Review, Mousse Magazine, and The Guardian.
