In conjunction with the exhibition Signals: How Video Transformed the World, the Mumbai-based group CAMP, led by Shaina Anand and Ashok Sukumaran, will be on MoMA Modern Mondays evening. This lecture and screening will draw from CAMP’s longstanding exploration of simultaneous networks of migration and media, from transnational shipping routes and geopolitical borders to everyday CCTV surveillance systems.
CAMP has created acclaimed works across video, film, electronic media, and public art forms. Engaging livestream feeds as well as intricately crafted montage, databases as well as “live cinema,” the group probes the possibilities and limits of video as a medium—and the ways in which old and new media have become an infrastructural condition of life around the world.
CAMP is a collaborative studio founded in Mumbai in 2007. Their research projects include Pad.ma, an online platform for video footage since 2008; Indiancine.ma, an archive of Indian film; and Njp.ma, an exploration of the Nam June Paik Archives. Currently working as a group of five, CAMP has exhibited internationally, most recently at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, 2023; they won the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize in 2021.
