Benjamin Ramírez Pérez

Between fiction and documentary, the work of Benjamin Ramírez Pérez explores questions of authenticity and identity as well as individual and collective relationships to history and geography.

Benjamin Ramírez Pérez was a participant at de Ateliers Amsterdam from 2016 – 2018. He studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne from 2009–2015 with Phil Collins, Matthias Müller and Julia Scher. His works have been screened at IFFR, Locarno, Edinburgh and Toronto International Film Festival, among others. He had recent Group and Solo shows at Artothek Cologne, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, de Ateliers, Amsterdam, and Alternative Space Loop, Seoul.

His works blur the line between fiction and reality while interrogating our political and social landscape and reflecting on processes of image making and their historical, political and technological implications. Staged narratives are intersected with essayistic and documentary material, drawing on cinematic, literary and theoretical references – such as in his film CONFLUENCE (2018, co-directed with Stefan Ramírez Pérez), which centers around Serbian pop singer and former child star Doris Bizetić.
