Pauline Julier is an artist and filmmaker. She explores the links that humans create with their environment through stories, rituals, knowledge and images. Her films and installations are composed of elements of diverse origins (documentary, theoretical, fictional) to restitute the complexity of our relationship to the world. 


"How do we transmit culture from one generation to the next ? How can we orient ourselves in time and space ? It is never an easy task. Especially for those who used to call themselves “Moderns” or “post-moderns”, because they always have an uneasy relation with tradition and inheritance. are they not supposed to break away with tradition, so as to free themselves from the weight of the past ? But free for what ? Pauline Julier stages how every generation has to raise such a question anew." Bruno Latour, Reset Modernity! Exhibition in ZKM Karlsruhe, 2016
