Biography

The Otolith Group is an artistic collective founded in 2002 in London by Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun, who together produce essays, curatorial projects, films and videos. Through an eclectic repertoire of media and art materials, Sagar and Eshun reflect on the nature of perception and analyse the role of documents and images in the construction of histories in the postcolonial world. Films, texts, documents, photographs, paintings, sound and music interrelate to build new temporalities. Expanding from the documentary genre, their films present a collage of images and address issues ranging from the ideology of the Cold War to the processes of global capitalism.

Exhibitions and presentations include Rubin Museum, New York (2018), MOCAD, Detroit (2011), MACBA, Barcelona (2011), Tate Modern, London (2010), ICA , London ( 2009), Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2008) and the Project Arts Centre, Dublin (2006), as well as Documenta, Kassel (2012) and the biennials of São Paulo (2010), Shanghai (2008) and Seville (2006), and the Transmediale International Media Arts Festival, Berlin (2004). Their work is in collections such as Tate Modern, London; Guggenheim, New York; and MACBA, Barcelona, among others.
