Katherine Behar

Sponsored by the RIT Project for the Digital Humanities, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Gannett Endowment for the Humanities.

Katherine Behar is an interdisciplinary new media and performance artist and is Assistant Professor of New Media at Baruch College. Her performances, interactive installations, and videos mix low and high technologies to portray the condition of living sensuously in digital media. Her projects mix low and high technologies, creating hybrid forms that are by turns humorous and sensuous.

Katherine's work appears at festivals, galleries, performance spaces, and art centers worldwide, including UNOACTU in Dresden; Judson Church in New York; The Big Screen Project in New York; Feldman Gallery + Project Space in Portland; De Balie Centre for Culture and Politics in Amsterdam; the Chicago Cultural Center; the Digital Live Art Festival in Leeds; the Swiss Institute in Rome; the National Museum of Art in Cluj-Napoca; and others. Her work has been supported by the Franklin Furnace Fund, the U.S. Consulate General in Leipzig, the Illinois Arts Council, and the Featured Performance Award from the Cleveland Performance Art Festival.

Behar serves as the Digital Fellow at Art Journal, and is a Baruch Faculty Fellow at the Rubin Museum of Art.

In addition to her creative work, Behar writes on topics pertaining to embodiment and technology, cyborgian ethics, emerging and obsolete technologies, and feminist media critique. Her writing has been published in Media-N, Parsons Journal for Information Mapping, Visual Communication Quarterly, EXTENSIONS: The Online Journal for Embodied Technology, and in conference proceedings for Digital Arts and Culture, SPIE, and Cyberworlds.
