Pallavi Paul Artist

Pallavi Paul is a New Delhi and Berlin based visual artist and film scholar. Her practice interrogates how the idea of ‘truth’ is produced and argued over in public life. Paul is particularly interested in the tension between the document and its aesthetic utterance—the documentary. She received her PhD in Film Studies from the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Her work has been exhibited at Tate Modern, London (2013); AV Festival, Newcastle (2018, 2016); Beirut Art Centre, Lebanon (2018); SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin (2019, 2022); Contour Biennale, Mechelen (2017); The Rubin Museum, New York (2019); New Alphabet School, HKW Berlin (2020); International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR, 2021); Colomboscope, Sri Lanka (2022); and Berlinale Forum Expanded (2022). In 2021-22 she was a visual arts fellow of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program. She is the artist in residence at Gropius Bau in 2023, and will be a fellow at Wissenschaft college in 2024.
