Cover art by Etienne-Jules Marey, Chronophotographic Study: Walking (1884).

Judith Rodenbeck is an art historian and cultural critic specializing in intermedia of the 1950s and 1960s. Her talk examines moments in visual production from the 19th to the 21st centuries and how we understand embodiment. It begins with the invention of cinema and walks on the moon. The former allowed for a biomechanical description of the act of walking, undertaken in the Paris studios of Etienne-Jules Marey. While the latter was the partial subject of one of the most haunting late 20th century art projects, Pierre Huyghe’s Ann Lee project.

She is the author of “Radical Prototypes: Allan Kaprow and the Invention of Happenings” (MIT Press). She is currently based in the Department of Media & Cultural Studies at the University of California, Riverside.

This project was supported by a Seed Grant from the Institute for Humanities Research at ASU.
