Adam Lewis Jacob
Adam Lewis Jacob is an artist, filmmaker and curator who is interested in reanimating dead ideas. Recent films have focused on counter cultural figures such as the anarchist cartoonist Donald Rooum, Wildcat and the politically empowering benefits of learning to make films together via the Birmingham Trade Union Resource Centre, People Meeting in a Room. Using archive footage, animation and collaborative approaches to performance that combine voice over with music made by friends, the films weave together different approaches to film making creating a kaleidoscopic vision of Britain’s recent past, both personal and at times psychedelic. Adam, along with Céline Amendola and Michael White, set up the artist run space Celine in 2015.
