These artists’ moving image works explore how uncertainty affects the personal, the political, and the social. Phil Collins’ marxism today (prologue) follows the fortunes of former teachers of Marxism-Leninism in Communist East Germany; The Role of a Lifetime by Deimantas Narkevičius considers the ethical responsibilities of the artist and the impossibility of objectivity; and in The Amateurist Miranda July portrays a woman on the brink of a technologically-driven madness.
