Blast Theory is renowned internationally as one of the most adventurous artists’ groups using interactive media, creating ground-breaking new forms of performance and interactive art that mixes audiences across the internet, live performance and digital broadcasting.  Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, the group’s work explores the social and political aspects of technology. Drawing on popular culture and games, the work often blurs the boundaries between the real and the fictional.

Kirsty Jennings has been with Blast Theory since 2012. As business director, Kirsty is responsible for developing and delivering Blast Theory’s business, finance and marketing strategies, which allow the artists to continue to make innovative and engaging work.  Before joining Blast Theory, Kirsty worked for Sheffield Doc/Fest, 104 Films and Documentary Campus in Berlin.

This year marks Blast Theory’s 25th anniversary and during her presentation Kirsty will discuss Blast Theory’s history and practice, focussing on case studies for recent works Karen, My One Demand and Operation Black Antler.
