Filmmaker, professor and researcher. Throughout her career, she has worked with television, film, video installation and video. In 1984, she created her first pieces, with video as her medium of choice, as part of the generation that benefited from the popularization of video-making equipment as the decade progressed. In 1989, during the then-called VI Festival Fotoptica Videobrasil, she won a residency prize at the Centre Internationale de Création Vidéo in Montbéliard, France, a seminal experience that steered her towards working with less linear narratives. In the Videocabines project, initiated in 1990, she afforded passersby in several cities around the world the chance to record themselves in video booths for a few seconds. Traces from these works can also be found in the TV show Brasil Legal, which aired on Rede Globo from 1995 until 1998. Sandra Kogut studied Philosophy and Communication at the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP). She served as a professor at the École Superieure Des Arts Décoratifs (ESAD) in Strasburg, France, and in the United States’ Princeton University, Columbia University, University of California – San Diego (UCSD), and New York University (NYU). Lives and works between Rio de Janeiro, New York and Paris.
