"The Collaboration: MS and AL", work in progress

My artistic practice is informed by feminist theory, intersectionality and post-colonialism. I work primarily with video on a project basis and often documentary footage and/or historical research serve as a starting points. Right now I am working on a project exploring the tension between a “history of feminism” and a ”feminist reading of history” considered from a Benjaminian perspective. The task is to take the legacy of historical materialism further and through fiction rethink temporality to be able to imagine a future different than the one introduced to us by the hegemony of the present. I aim to work self-reflexively and also problematize my own gaze, position and privileges. Many of my projects are interdisciplinary and in collaboration with other artists or people from other fields.
