Following the publication of Dr Philippa Lovatt‘s and Dr Graiwoot Chulphongsathorn’s (Chulalongkorn University) co-edited Screen dossier: ‘Tracing the Anthropocene in Southeast Asian film and artists’ moving image, Philippa is excited to announce ‘(Im)material worlds: Tracing creative practice, histories and environmental contexts in artists’ moving image from Southeast Asia and the UK’ funded by a British Council Connections Through Culture UK-Southeast Asia Grant and co-curated and co-organised with CAMPLE LINE and LUX Scotland.

(Im)material worlds is an artists’ moving image programme that gives focus to the environmental crisis from Global South and postcolonial perspectives. It brings together recent and new moving image work by four Southeast Asian and four UK-based artists and filmmakers, who use experimental and essayistic forms to explore communities, habitats and places through their colonial, political, military and environmental histories.

The programme unfolds over eight weeks with a new paired online screening and hosted dialogue with the filmmakers each fortnight.
