Quote

“No longer delimited as a filmmaker in some contexts and a writer in others, Steyerl is today celebrated as an artist, a vague honorific that has become, in our era, the last refuge of the true polymath and allows us to consider the full range of her activity as a whole.” Ed Halter, Parkett 97

About

“Hito Steyerl, a filmmaker and a writer based in Berlin, is perhaps best known for her video essays, which delve into pressing contemporary issues such as globalization, feminism, militarization, and, arguably most central to her practice, the mass proliferation and dissemination of images and knowledge through digital technology… Steyerl’s work is fundamentally documentary in form, featuring extensive research, composite imagery, interviews, montage, and first-person voiceovers. Nevertheless, her videos are underlined by a clear awareness of the inherent subjectivity of the medium—that is, of the uncertainty of both moving and still images… In her seven-color silkscreenprint for Parkett, she visually explores fragments of Gosprom, the most spacious single building in the world, when it was completed in 1928 in the then Ukrainian capital.” -Artspace
