Pablo Antoli

Pablo Antoli’s investigation examines the discursive conditions that enable photo-filmic objects –both as artworks and documents- to construct historical narratives in general and collective memory in particular of the Mexican Revolution. A driving aspect of the research is the formal strategies that engage photographic and cinematographic materials with collective memory of conflict. Using archival materials as a starting point, the practice-led research will look at the ways in which official historical narratives can be contested and the collective memory of the period questioned. Stemming from an interest in geopolitics and history the project will look into mapping the interactions between the archive, the artwork, the event and the physical space.
