As part of UCL Anthropology’s departmental seminar series held between Material, Visual and Digital Culture and Public Anthropology, which I co-convene with Rik Adriaans, I’m delighted to say that the artist Jennifer Lyn Morone will give a talk in February 2021.

Jennifer Lyn Morone is a conceptual artist and designer who makes work that seeks to disrupt the narratives that humans create – such as corporations and nation states. Research based, spanning various mediums and multi-disciplinary, her work examines the interrelations of political, economic, and technological designs and their impact on society. Jennifer is known for having turned herself into a corporation and collection of marketable goods and services. Everything she is biologically and intellectually, everything she does, learns or creates has the potential to be turned into profits. As Jennifer underlines, Jennifer Lyn Morone™ Inc is not a speculative project.

Alex Ungprateeb Flynn is an Assistant Professor at the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance, University of California, Los Angeles. Working as an anthropologist and curator, Alex’s practice explores the intersection of ethnographic and curatorial modes of enquiry. Researching collaboratively with activists, curators and artists in Brazil since 2007, Alex explores the prefigurative potential of art in community contexts, prompting the theorisation of fields such as the production of knowledge, the pluriversal, and the social and aesthetic dimensions of form.
