LUÍS LÁZARO DE MATOS, THE NOMADIC CITY OF CAMELA, 2017
Once again, for the second year running, MAAT takes part in Artists’ Film International, a programme dedicated to exhibiting video, film and animation by artists from around the world. Established by the Whitechapel Gallery (London), this network brings together
16 institutions that every year choose a film by a relevant artist in their country and share it with the other partners. The selected works are then exhibited at each institution under a common theme, thus offering a privileged platform to map out contemporary artistic production in the field of the moving image.
In dialogue with the industrial machinery at the Boiler Hall, this exhibition presents a selection of films around the concept of “collaboration”. In addition to works resulting from collaborations between artists and other creators, the exhibition features films that testify to the renewed relevance and potential of collaborative experiences at a time
of erosion of social, political and economic structures.
