Artists’ Film International 2018. Truth

Maria do Mar Fazenda

Truth was the theme chosen for one more edition of the Artists’ Film International at the Power Plant’s Boiler Room. The curatorial concept started from a quote from Saint Augustine: “Man walks in the image of truth”, thus shifting the theme of Truth to the image itself and to the medium of film.

Launched in 2008 by the Whitechapel Gallery in London, the Artists’ Film International programme is a global partnership. Every year, each member chooses a work by a prominent artist from their country, and then shares it with the other partners. The combined works are exhibited in all the participating countries, bringing together artists whose practices are deeply rooted in their individual contexts.
