“My videos are about militancy and ecstasy: revolutions and terrorists, miracles and saints. The characters in my films wrestle their agency from the structures that would control them, including language, reason, gender, God, capital, and the state.” – Mark Boulos
Published by Hatje Cantz, the monograph is the culmination of a relationship that began in 2012 when Forma Arts commissioned and produced Echo, a large-scale, experimental and technologically-pioneering video installation. A book signing will follow the screening. The monograph will be available at a very special launch price for this evening only.
The evening will include a screening of selected film works by the artist, followed by an open conversation between the artist and curator Matthew Schum.
