Conversation with Artist Jacqueline Goss on July 26


Jacqueline Goss, based in New York, creates film and video in order to explore the ways we think about ourselves through systemic machines, like politics, culture, and science. Goss will talk about her work in game space, animation, and the documentary form.

Her most recent videos are “How To Fix The World” --a look at Soviet-sponsored literacy programs in 1930’s Central Asia and “Stranger Comes To Town” –an animated documentary about the identity-tracking of immigrants and travelers coming into the United States (now on view at Laguna Art Museum).

A native of New Hampshire, she attended Brown University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She teaches in the Film and Electronic Arts Department at Bard College in the Hudson Valley of New York. She is a 2008 Tribeca Film Institute Media Arts Fellow and the 2007 recipient of the Herb Alpert Award in film and Video.

Her current project is “G10” --an animated fictional film about ten characters from various countries who meet at a Swiss hotel during a conference on globalism.
