Not sure where you stand on contemporary art? Let Jessica Backus, Director of the Art Genome Project at Artsy, help you understand how to better understand art.

Jessica Backus currently serves as The Director of Learning and The Art Genome Project at Artsy, an online database, encyclopedia and discovery engine for art. She received an M.A. in Art History from Hunter College, New York, where her research focused on post-war German art. Her thesis was a monographic study of the artist Werner Tübke within the cultural politics of East Germany. Recent talks include “‘Real Modern Art’: Werner Tübke and the Question of Modernism,” Reassessing East German Art: 25 Years After the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Iowa State University, Ames IA, September 2014; and “Postmodernism, Allegory and Vergangenheitsbewältigung in Werner Tübke’s Life Memories of Dr. of Law Schulze,” College Arts Association 102nd Annual Conference, Chicago, February 2014.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
