Phil Collins

Sat Oct 17 2009

2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

Internationally renowned UK artist Phil Collins will speak about his politically engaged media practice and screen his acclaimed film zasto ne govorim srpski (na srpskom) (2008), which translates to why I don't speak Serbian (in Serbian), commissioned by the 55th Carnegie International, Pittsburgh. Nominated for the Turner Prize in 2006, Collins uses photography and video to explore individual and collective processes of representation – particularly in places of great unrest – by foregrounding the ambivalent relationship between camera and subject. Phil Collins is an artist based in Glasgow and Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions include Tramway, Glasgow (2009), Aspen Art Museum (2008), Tate Britain, London (2006), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2006), and sala rekalde, Bilbao (2006).
