Josh Kline

Working primarily in sculpture, video, and installation, Josh Kline creates artworks and exhibitions that consider the ways in which our humanity has been transformed, commodified, and instru­mentalized within neoliberal society. Examining the regimes of control to which the human body is increasingly subjected—ranging from governmental and corporate surveillance to the relentless pursuit of youth—Kline addresses the erosion of boundaries between labor and leisure and the incursion of consumer culture into the most literally intimate aspects of life: blood, DNA, and neurochemistry. Recent projects have explored the impact of emerging technological innovations including automation, AI, and deep fakes on society. In 2015, Kline began a major cycle of installation-based projects exploring the politics and economics of the 21st Century.
