Phil Collins’ diverse practice addresses the act of image-making, examining how we participate in and understand culture through the camera’s lens. His approach is characterised by a close engagement with place and communities. 

Collins' film marxism today (prologue) is a collaboration with teachers of Marxism-Leninism from the former German Democratic Republic. First presented at the 6th Berlin Biennale, it mixes contemporary interviews with the ex-teachers and archival footage from the heyday of the socialist state. For use! value! exchange! (2010) Collins invited Andrea Ferber to teach a class on Marx’s Das Kapital. The film documents the seminar almost directly, with subtle cuts that mimic the act of staring idly out of the window.

CAST Film Club is programmed by Kelly Taylor.
