The subjects filmed by American-born Mark Boulos inhabit the realm of documentary, but he chooses to show his large-scale, multi-screen video installations in art venues and galleries. “To call a film ‘art’ is to release it from the demands of reportage and anthropology that otherwise burden documentaries,” Boulos says. This extensively illustrated catalogue considers three of Boulos’ most recent video installations, All That is Solid Melts into Air (featured in the Projects Gallery of MoMA, NY in 2012), The Word Was God, and No Permanent Address. Boulos’ subjects include the revolutionary fervor, political militancy, sexual identity and religious ecstasy of radical organizations such as the Filipino revolutionary New People’s Army and the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta.
