Jenny Vogel's Talk at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

On Wednesday, September 28, at 5 pm, Professor Jenny Vogel gave a talk
at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth as part of the Modern Graduate
Series 2011–2012. Jenny Vogel is a new media artist, working in
photography, video, and performance art. Her work explores the world as
viewed through the lenses of contemporary communication technology, the
media, and historical preconceptions. She received her MFA from Hunter
College, New York City (2003), and is currently an assistant professor
of New Media Art in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the
University of North Texas. For Modern Graduate Series, Vogel discusses
her influences and the underlying themes of her studio practice, such as
self-induced voyeurism and the curious history of webcams, the dark
beauty of a mediated planet, the failure of capturing the experience of
history, and humanity in a prefabricated world.
