An exhibition of moving image artworks and documentary films presented by VisionMix and co curated by Dr. Lucía Imaz King (Lecturer in Moving Image, University of Brighton)

The Exhibition brings a selection of works in documentary film and artists’ video by ten contemporary artists/filmmakers living and working in India today, including artists of Indian heritage based internationally.
The films are linked by their protagonists’ state of transience at key moments within the films providing numerous insights into how day-to-day realities are being catalysed to affect change, but also to reflect on present political and environmental concerns.
Collectively the films are examples of rendering new worlds through improvisation which cannot exist ‘in the real world’; an approach that is re-constructive and playful; allowing for adaptation to the challenges of the environment whilst critically questioning our role within it.
