Jenny Perlin makes films, videos, installations, and drawings. Her projects draw on interdisciplinary research interests in history, cultural studies, literature and linguistics. Her films incorporate innovative techniques to investigate history as it relates to the present. Perlin shoots 16mm film and digital video and combines live-action, staged, and documentary images with hand-drawn, text-based animation. Her films have been shown as single-channel works and multi-channel installations at numerous national and international venues including the Guggenheim Museum, Mass MoCA, MoMA, and Guangzhou Triennial, Berlin and Rotterdam film festivals. She is currently teaching at the University of Pennsylvania, the Cooper Union, and The New School in New York.
