The work of the Otolith Group, founded in London in 2002 by Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun, reflects on the perception and nature of documentary practice through films, texts and activities related to media archives. Expanding on the documentary genre, their films are imbued with a collage-like effect of images which create a new atlas that narrates the different forms taken by post-colonial situations. From Cold War ideology to global capitalism processes, recent history appears as fragments of a personal diary which, in turn, could be fiction.
