Hito Steyerl is a filmmaker, visual artist, writer, and innovator of the essay documentary. Her prolific filmmaking and writing occupies a highly discursive position between the fields of art, philosophy, and politics, constituting a deep exploration of late capitalism’s social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Resulting from a personal lens of documentary film, her work has developed in the form of immersive videos and multimedia installations combined with a spirit of research and experimentation. Her films and lectures have increasingly addressed the presentational context of art, while her writing has circulated widely in both academic and art journals.
