The Otolith Group was founded in 2002 by Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar. Eshun was born in London in 1966. He studied English Literature at University College, Oxford (1985–8). Sagar was born in London in 1968. She studied Anthropology and Hindi at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (1994–7).
The Otolith Group have been nominated for their project A Long Time Between Suns, which took the form of exhibitions at Gasworks and The Showroom, London with accompanying publication. The collaborative and discursive practice of The Otolith Group questions the nature of documentary history across time by using material found within a range of disciplines, in particular the moving image.
