Zanny Begg is a Sydney-based artist and filmmaker who is interested in exploring the archaeology of contested history/ies and the architecture of social change. She works with film, drawing and installation to explore ways in which we can live and be in the world differently: this has included working with macro-political themes, such as alte-globalization protests, and in micro-political worlds, such as with kids in prison. She is currently working on a film project about one of the first feminist texts, written in Paris in 1402.
