Curated by Alice Butler and Daniel Fitzpatrick, aemi presents the second in a three part programme that explores ideas around collectivism as they relate to contemporary film practices.

This programme seeks to examine what are the current limits of cinema as a political apparatus.  From the collage-works of Kelly Gallagher and Ana Vaz to the ‘crowd-sourced collectivism’ at play in Alex Tyson’s Mountain Fire Personnel, the collective is revealed here as a​ complex, multifarious construction. For the artists and filmmakers featured, the role of the collective ​now ​rests somewhere between the personal and the political, the abstract and the figural.
