THE OTOLITH GROUP: RECENT WORK
The NYU Steinhardt Department of Art and Art Professions is pleased to present a program of recent work by The Otolith Group. The event will feature the New York premiere of their essay film MEDIUM EARTH (2013), which explores the geology of California alongside the spatialized unconscious of capitalist infrastructure. Through images that appeal to the senses and the voice of a “medium” whose body is sensitive to seismic occurrences, the film listens to California’s deserts, translates what the stones write, and decodes the calligraphy of the earth’s crevices. The second part of the event will be a performance lecture entitled WHO DOES THE EARTH THINK IT IS (2014), which is based on an unofficial collection of unsolicited earthquake predictions sent to the United States Geological Survey Pasadena Field Office.

Founded in 2002 by Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun, The Otolith Group explores the histories and potentials of science fiction and Tricontinentalism. Their work has been exhibited at venues including MACBA, MAXXI, the Hayward Gallery, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and the Sao Paulo Biennial. In 2010, The Otolith Group was nominated for the Turner Prize.
