About the Artist

Phil Collins

Phil Collins is filmmaker and visual artist based in Berlin and Wuppertal, Germany. He is Professor of Video Art and Performance at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. Collins lived in Belfast in the 1990s, where he graduated from the University of Ulster. First significant solo exhibition of his work was presented in 2003 at Ormeau Baths Gallery. Since then Collins has developed a diverse practice which explores the intersections of art, politics and popular culture. Reflecting critical consciousness, immediacy and commitment to myriad forms of experience, his works question the cut-and-dried meanings of social situations and definitions of language, economic status and locality. Recent solo projects and presentations of his work include Bring Down The Walls, Creative Time, New York (2018); Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, OH and Manchester International Festival (both 2017); Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL (both 2016); Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow (2015); Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2013); and British Film Institute, London (2011).
