Olivier Marboeuf is an author, critique, performer and independent curator. Since 2004, he has been the director of Espace Khiasma, Les Lilas, Greater Paris. Core to his trajectory and preoccupations is the relationship between text and voice one the one hand, and still or moving image on the other, and more particularly issues of transmission. For the last few years, his research has concentrated on a re-reading of colonialism according to principles of narrative speculation that come into friction with dominant historical narratives. Largely engaged in artists’ cinema, he is also a film producer and programmer within Phantom, a department of Khiasma.
