Neïl Beloufa has produced a considerable oeuvre of subversive films that critique politics, colonialism and capitalism. Beloufa uses amateur performers to muddle the boundary between reality and fiction, and his elaborate film sets and the makeshift installations in which he presents his work speak to his defiance of artistic and cinematic convention. Beloufa was nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2015 and the Artes Mundi and Nam June Paik prizes in 2016. His work has appeared at MoMA, New York, the ICA, London, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, and most recently at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, in 2018. His latest exhibition, at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, opened in August 2018.
