The Otolith Group was established in London in 2002. Anjalika Sagar (London, 1968) and Kodwo Eshun (London, 1966) have been leading experimentalists in the fields of documentary and filmic essays, known both for their own work and for their support and exploration of other filmic practices by programming and organizing discursive events, much of which is done under the name The Otolith Collective. Through these projects, The Otolith Group challenges a white modernist mode of artistic production and expands the global view of art. Core to the work is an ongoing engagement with the formal methodologies of the essay film understood as a site of experimentation with spaces and times through sonic and visual assemblies. The Otolith Group’s work weaves together performance, science fictions, postcolonial histories, experimental musics, philosophies and sciences with varying 20th and 21st century historically situated political afterlives and futurities.
