Mikhail Lylov

about the author

Mikhail Lylov is an independent artist and curator who lives in Berlin. His practice includes films, installations, performances, and writings. The works establish and discuss situations in which economic and knowledge models are questioned, renegotiated, or rendered useless. Lylov’s work investigates a genealogy of the divide between mental and material in different contexts, especially in labour and anthropology. He looks for situations in which concepts become sensually available forms and knowledge turns into a matter of perception. Lylov’s projects have been supported by “Le Pavillon” programme at Palais De Tokyo, Paris, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, the BFI (British Film Institute, London), Berlinale—Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Courtisane Festival, Ghent, and Houston Museum of Fine Arts.
