The Otolith Group is an artists' collective founded in London in 2000 by Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun. Under the title The Otolith Group. Thoughtform, the MACBA presented many of the works that the group had produced up until that time. Sagar and Eshun use an eclectic range of media and materials to explore the nature of perception and to analyse the role of documents and images in the construction of narratives of the post-colonial world. Films, texts, documents, photographs, paintings, sound and music merge and overlap to create new temporalities in their work.

Their documentaries become a science fiction of the present, which recovers forgotten moments from history and projects them into the future. Sagar and Eshun's work is best approached by putting aside the traditional methodological boundaries between creators, critics and curators. They create, analyse, interpret and reinterpret reality in an obsessive attempt to transcend the opacity of their images. To do so, they turn to the full range of semantic possibilities of montage and invite viewers to become editors of their works.
