By way of the guided tour through the exhibition, the ZKM seeks to facilitate the users’ personal contact with the artist and thereby experience more about her work. During the tour, Lynn Hershman Leeson gives an account of the conception, development and realization of works such as »Deep Contact« and, alongside less known facts and background information, also provides numerous anecdotes from her artistic creative period. 

»Deep Contact« is the title of an interactive media art work by Lynn Hershman Leeson. For this installation, the North American artist connected touch screen and video disc to an artistic work for the first time. A female figure on the touch screen requests that visitors touch the screen, and thus her, too. Different adventures unfold in the virtual world depending on which part of the body is touched.

Guidance language is English.
