Stockholm 16 april och 24 april 2010 The third part of the Highlighting lecture series coincides with Moderna Museet’s Lee Lozano exhibition. After her death in 1999, Lee Lozano disappeared from art history. Unlike her contemporary male colleagues on the American art scene, Lee Lozano never got proper recognition and is still, therefore, relatively unknown. In recent years, she has been rediscovered and there is a steadily growing international interest in her oeuvre.
In the Highlighting lecture series, we wish to achieve a deeper understanding of Lee Lozano’s oeuvre by discussing the contemporary relevance of her work. The idea behind Moderna Museet’s retrospective exhibition is to highlight Lee Lozano and present her work for the first time to the Nordic public.

Jo Applin is a lecturer in Modern and Contemporary Art at the University of York, UK. She was recently a research fellow at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal. Jo Applin has recently completed the manuscript for a book titled The Encrypted Object: The Secret World of Sixties Sculpture, which focuses on the work of Lee Bontecou, Claes Oldenburg, Lucas Samaras, H.C. Westermann and Bruce Nauman. Her articles have been published in journals including Art History, Sculpture Journal, Art Journal and parallax. Her current research project, titled Not Working, focuses on a small group of women artists who were active — or inactive — in New York City in the 1960s.
Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer is an independent writer and scholar. He is currently affiliated with the research programme "Notational Iconicity" at the philosophy department of the Freie Univerität Berlin. In his practice, he combines working in the field of art criticism, theory and exhibitions with academic research on related topics. After having published a book on the Swiss artist Dieter Roth, he is now studying text/image relations in the arts and in cognitive processes.
