Stills From Seven Works

Nicolas Cilins - Stills From Seven Works
A monograph dedicated to Nicolas Cilins’ films between 2011 and 2020.
Stills From Seven Works contains hundreds of pictures documenting seven projects. The images are arranged into grids, like a contact sheet or a storyboard. The book includes an academic essay by Kathleen Bühler, film historian and chief curator at the Kunstmuseum Bern, a philosophical reading by French philosopher and art critic David Zerbib, and a conversation between German curator and researcher Anja Lückenkemper and Nicolas Cilins.
Nicolas Cilins (they/them) is a conceptual, video and performance artist from Geneva, Switzerland. Much of Cilins' work is collaborative. They engage people and communities to cooperate and participate in the creative process. Whether it is calling upon African magicians, Romani prostitutes, or refugees around Europe, the result of these collaborations, with its embedded irony, seems to challenge clichés and the individual, scrutinising the particular across the European continent and beyond.
