Dr Ope Lori (in conversation with Ajamu) is a conceptual and political artist who works primarily with the moving image and photography, around the politics of representation, race, gender and sexual identity and the female form in popular culture. Playfully re-writing these racialized scripts, looking and being seen, recognition and misrecognition take place, through the use of homoerotic images ‘of’ and ‘between’, black women and white women in visual dialogues and, new to her most recent work, the incorporation of the male form. Ope’s practice aims to draw the viewer in through the ways that looking dynamics are turned upside down, from positions of power, to powerlessness, from being passive spectators to consciously viewing participants. She is interested in the use of aesthetics in making visually pleasing screen images, but is also drawn to non-aesthetic spaces and strategies, that draws the viewer into the work by experiencing the image, through desire and pleasure. Her works are purposely thought provoking and challenging through her explicit use of stereotypes, which focus on taboo subjects such as inter racial mixing, gender role-playing and sexuality, all of which stem from the feminist mantra that ‘the personal is political’. Of Nigerian heritage, she lives and works in London. www.opelori.com

Dr Pratap Rughani’s (Moose Cinema, Justine) practice embraces a range of documentary film and photographic approaches. Much of his early film work is in observational broadcast documentary modes, with twenty-five films for BBC 2 and Channel 4. Other films are independent commissions for the British Council or research-supported projects for gallery spaces such as Modern Art Oxford. Many explore the dynamics of inter-cultural communication, conceiving documentary as a crucible in which people of radically different perspectives, cultures and politics come into relation, for example with the Truth & Reconciliation Commission of the new South Africa. He filmed in the aftermath of many moments of tension or emergence from conflict including in South Africa, Rwanda, Northern Ireland, Aboriginal Australia and across the Islamic world. Pratap is interested in cultivating pluralised film spaces through which newer understandings in inter-cultural documentary can evolve. He writes on practical and philosophical questions of documentary film in a number of book chapters, academic and journalistic articles exploring questions of documentary ethics, peace and conflict and post-colonial emergence.
