Performance lecture: Report on the status of the “Version” project promoted by the Edith Russ Site for Media Art
12 May 2009, 19:00
Artist: Kristin Lucas
On 5 October 2007 Kristin Lucas became the most up-to-date version of her Self, when a Californian court granted her permission to change her name from Kristin Sue Lucas to Kristin Sue Lucas. She justified her application by saying she wanted to “refresh” herself. In her presentation Lucas reports on what strategies she uses to understand the implications, limitations and advantages of being the latest version of one’s Self. To this end she has talked to legal experts, philosophers, media mavens, cognition theorists, geneticists, twins, double agents, born-again Christians, believers in reincarnation, and others.
In English.
