Biography

Founded by Shaina Anand and Ashok Sukumaran, CAMP creates work that pushes the binaries of art vs non-art, commodity markets vs free culture, or individual vs institutional through electricity, transport, trade, archives, video, radio and the internet. Their practice includes films, video works, photography, installation and community programmes.

CAMP’s process often follows the spirit of open-source communities. The artist collective is also a co-initiator of Pad.ma, an online digital-media archive.

Their work has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, including CAMP After Media Promises, Nam June Paik Art Center Prize, Seoul (2021–2022); CAMP: Beginnings, Argos Center for Art and Media, Brussels (2019); and In Cameras Res, De Appel, Amsterdam (2019). They have also participated in many international group exhibitions, such as Palestine from Above, A.M. Qattan Foundation, Ramallah (2021–2022); Watch and Chill, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul and online (2021–2022); Phantas.Ma/Polis, Asian Art Biennial, Taiwan (2021); Collections display: Media Networks, Tate Modern, London (2020); Chicago Architecture Biennial, Chicago (2020); Body Building, Ishara Art Foundation, Dubai (2019); An Oceanic Feeling, Len Lye Center Cinema, New Plymouth (2018); Lahore Biennale 01 (2018); The Ocean After Nature, Grossman Gallery, School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, Massachusetts (2017); and Dhaka Art Summit (2014), among others.

Their work has been featured in multiple international film festivals, including Toronto Palestine Film Festival, Toronto (2021); Punto De Vista, International Documentary Festival of Navarra (2020); Festival des Trois Continents, Nantes, France (2018); Third Little Cinema International Festival, Goethe Institut, Kolkata (2016); and Agadir International Documentary Festival, Algeria (2014).
