Jen Hall

Artist Philospherat mass college of art
United States
Focus area: Medicine

Jennifer Hall is an artist philosopher currently applying the frames of enactivism and disability aesthetics to highlight the power of invention by confronting embodied pain. As it becomes increasingly difficult, and perhaps less relevant, to distinguish between the biological and the mechanical, she deploys her own body as a site for performative events of transhumanist confrontation. Jennifer holds a PhD from the Institute of Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts where she works as a thesis director and is Professor Emerita at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design where she continues to teach in their graduate programs.
