Peggy Ahwesh

Vision Machines

Since the early 1980s, American artist and filmmaker Peggy Ahwesh has forged a distinctive moving image practice in the ruins of originality and authority. Vision Machines is the first book dedicated to Ahwesh’s practice, published on the occasion of Ahwesh’s solo exhibition at Spike Island (25 September to 16 January 2022). It explores how Ahwesh has extended and contested the paradigm of experimental cinema over the last four decades and includes texts by film scholars Erika Balsom and Elena Gorfinkel, writer Tendai Mutambu, novelist Shola von Reinhold, and a conversation between the artist and academic John David Rhodes.
