collectif_fact is Annelore Schneider and Claude Piguet. They live and work in both London and Geneva.
Their projects, particularly videos, are often a deconstruction of what we perceive as cinematographic codes of our visual culture. collectif_fact are fascinated by the daily repetition, stereotypes and clichés from popular culture. They deal mostly with aspects of the(anti) spectacle, simulacra and appropriation. In order to accomplish this, they investigate the ways in which narration can be taken apart and restructured to form different stories and alternative meanings. Through the appropriation of cinematographic codes and strategies in their works, they encourage the observer to reflect critically on the habits that condition our perception of reality.
From 2002 to 2009 collectif_fact included also Swann Thommen.
