Coby Kennedy (b. 1953, USA) explores the often overlooked global issues of social class, power and influence as it exists today, has existed in the past, and as it will exist tomorrow. A strong throughline in his work is the exploration of the human tendency to build empire on the foundation of mythology/theology. Juxtaposing the past of power, control and privilege to its present in order to predict its future, Kennedy’s work deals with often unspoken dynamics of media’s influence on modern social entitlement and problematics of self image.
