With a point of departure in a presentation of material and empirical cases from several long-term anthropological research projects in which film and photography occupies a privileged role, this presentation focuses on my approach to an experimental visual anthropology. In the presentation, I invite the audience through concrete stages of my work process and discuss my take on intervention, collaboration, co-curation, editing and exhibition-making, and how these may be seen as constituting both methodological and analytical approaches that afford particular ways of interrogating and communicating anthropological knowledge.
