Eduardo Kac

Eduardo Kac (Rio de Janeiro, 1962) began his artistic career at 18 with his Pornogram series, which merged poetry, photography, performance and body politics. He has since focused on telepresence and bio art. His works integrate robotics, biology and networking to explore the fluidity of subject positions in the post-digital world. Kac’s work has been exhibited internationally, with shows including: Como Vai Você, Geração 80?, Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro (1984); Holopoetry, Funarte, Rio de Janeiro (1988); Ornitorrinco on the Moon, Künstlerhaus, Graz, Austria (1993); Telematic Connections: The Virtual Embrace, organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York (2001); Gwangju Biennale, Korea and XXVI Bienal de São Paulo (2004);  Perder la forma humana, Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid and dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel (2012); and New Works, Black Box Gallery, Copenhagen (2014). His work is part of the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Modern Art of Valencia, Spain, the ZKM Museum, Karlsruhe, Germany, and the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, among others.
