Visual artist and programmer

Julia Martos

Julia Martos is a visual artist and film programmer. Since obtaining her first Master degree in Artistic Production (2013), she's been researching the policies of archives and how they're displayed. Between 2014-2018, as a member of the SC Collective, she ran the Swap Footage Festival in Valencia (Spain) focusing on collective creation and found footage cinema. In 2021, Julia is completing her Film Programming and Curating training at Birkbeck University. Her dissertation, The Hand Behind: a contemporary awakening of women from the Spanish family archive, is a manifestation of her profound interest in tracing a feminist counter-history through found footage practice. As a programmer, she's taken part in the Essay Film Festival (London 2021), in the film season Archivos Vivos (BilbaoArte 2021), in the Korean Film Nights of the KCCUK (London, 2020) and in the Xcèntric Archive of the CCCB as part of her internship (2021), in addition to her work as Coordination Assistant at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow in 2017-18.
