Asia Bazdyrieva & Solveig Qu Suess
Geocinema (Solveig Qu Suess, Asia Bazdyrieva) is a collective that explores the possibilities of a “planetary” notion of cinema. Their practice has been concerned with the understanding and sensing of the earth while being on the ground, enmeshed within vastly distributed processes of image and meaning making.
Their work has been shown internationally, including the solo show Making of Earths (Kunsthall Trondheim, 2020), and group shows such as Critical Zones (ZKM Karlsruhe, 2020-21), and Re-thinking Collectivity (Guangzhou Image Triennale, 2021). In 2020 they were nominated for the Schering Stiftung Award for Artistic Research, and for the Golden Key prize of Kassel Docfest.
