I, an Archeologist

Maya Schweizer
We’re on a tour through the Jewish catacombs of Rome. The archaeologist’s fragmentary narration is interspersed with directions to the lighting technician. We never see a complete image: our understanding of history is determined by its representation.

Born in 1976 in Paris, Maya studied at the Aix-Marseille University, the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig (HGB) and the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK). Schweizer works with different media, directing her focus towards experimental short films. She has had numerous solo exhibitions and showed her works in group exhibitions and at biennials. Her videos have been selected for several festivals and events, including Forum Expanded at the Berlinale, the Vancouver International Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. To date, four monographs on her work have been published.
