The Otolith
Group
About

The Otolith Group was founded in London in 2002 by artists and theorists Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun. The term ‘Otolith’ is named after an organ located inside the ear that enables humans to sense motion and gravity as they move in space. In a similar way, the group operates as a platform for research and dialogue, while challenging the vertical divisions between the real and the imagined, history and fiction. Inspired by traditions of collective filmmaking, it integrates moving image with audio, image, text, installation, and curation to convey provocative imaginations of futures engendered by the histories and presences of global African and Asian diasporas.


The Otolith Group was short-listed for the Turner Prize in 2010 and has been featured in solo exhibitions at Argos Centre for Art and Media, Brussels (2007), MACBA, Barcelona (2011), Bétonsalon, Paris (2011), MAXXI, Rome (2011–12), and Project 88, Mumbai (2012), Bergen Kunsthalle (2014), Rubin Museum, New York (2018), Delfina Foundation, London (2014). Their latest solo exhibition Xenogenesis (2019-2020), presented by the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, will travel to the Institute for Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge, The Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester and the Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah.
