Isaac Julien is a British artist whose work draws from and comments on a range of artistic disciplines and practices (film, dance, photography, music, theatre, painting and sculpture) and uniting them in dramatic audiovisual film installations, photographic works and documentary films. Born in London in 1960, where he currently lives and works, Julien studied at St Martins’ School of Art. Julien was a founder member of the Sankofa Film and Video Collective formed to expose the racialised unconscious of British Society in the Thatcher years, and subsequently of Normal Films established to produce queer cinema in a UK context. Julien is represented in museum and private collections throughout the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Tate, the UK Government Art Collection, Centre Pompidou, the Guggenheim Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and the Brandhorst Museum. Julien has held several professorial, teaching and research positions in the field of visual arts and cultural theory over the course of his career. Current positions include Chair of Global Art at University of Arts, London and Professor of Media Art at Staatliche Hoscschule fur Gestaltung, Karlsruhe.
