Eduardo Kac is internationally recognized for his telepresence and bio art. A pioneer of telecommunications art in the pre-Web
'80s, Eduardo Kac (pronounced "Katz") emerged in the early '90s with his radical works combining telerobotics and living organisms.
His visionary integration of robotics, biology and networking explores the fluidity of subject positions in the post-digital
world. His work deals with issues that range from the mythopoetics of online experience (Uirapuru) to the cultural impact
of biotechnology (Genesis); from the changing condition of memory in the digital age (Time Capsule) to distributed collective
agency (Teleporting an Unknown State); from the problematic notion of the "exotic" (Rara Avis) to the creation of life and
evolution (GFP Bunny). Kac's work has been exhibited internationally at venues such as Exit Art and Ronald Feldman Fine Arts,
New York; Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, Paris; Castello di Rivoli, Turin, Italy; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; and Seoul
Museum of Art, Korea. Kac's work has been showcased in biennials including Yokohama Triennial, Japan; Biennial of the End
of the World, and Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil. His work is included in many permanent collections, such as: the Tate, London;
the Museum of Modern Art in New York; and the Museum of Modern Art of Valencia, among others. Kac's work has been featured
both in contemporary art publications (Contemporary, Flash Art, Artforum, ARTnews, Kunstforum, Tema Celeste, Artpress, NY
Arts Magazine), contemporary art books (Phaidon, Thames and Hudson, Oxford, MIT Press) and in the mass media (ABC, BBC, PBS,
Le Monde, Boston Globe, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, New York Times).
A professor at the School of the Art
Institute of Chicago, he lectures and publishes worldwide.
