From documentary to fiction: the first monograph on the sociocritical video artist

Over the past decade American-Swiss filmmaker Mark Boulos (* 1974) has expanded the scope of time-based media in exhibitions. His ethnography transforms actual life into essay-like hybrid films blending documentary cinema with art gallery installation. Whether set amidst traffic in London’s financial district, conflict in the Nigeria Delta, a Catholic home in Damascus, rebel territory in the Philippines, a field in Syria, a church in Greenwich, or upon an acting stage in Hollywood, Boulos traces the complexities of our era at the fringes of politics and cinema. Each montage composes narrative in a manner that evades the codes of representation that guide contemporary video art.

With over 100 images, texts, interviews, and accounts from the field by the artist, the first monograph of Boulos’ work gives an extensive overview of his oeuvre.
