Josh Kline (b. 1979, Philadelphia, USA) lives and works in New York. Kline creates artworks and exhibitions that consider the ways in which our humanity has been transformed, commodified, and instru­mentalized within neoliberal society. Examining the regimes of control to which the human body is increasingly subjected—ranging from governmental and corporate surveillance to the relentless pursuit of youth—Kline addresses the erosion of boundaries between labor and leisure and the incursion of consumer culture into the most literally intimate aspects of life: blood, DNA, neurochemistry. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at Modern Art Oxford, UK; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington DC; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel; ICA Philadelphia; The New Museum, Whitney Museum, and MoMA PS1.
