Excerpt

Lynn Hershman Leeson is a contemporary classic but no one knows she is a classic. Leeson is 80 and has been recognized for several years as an artist who is always one of the first to connect art and identity with new technological developments. In that capacity, Leeson would also have been in the right place with a large overview in the Stedelijk, but for now she has to make do with an exhibition in the Rozenstraat in Amsterdam – which is not to be missed for that reason alone.
