Maja Borg

The artist and film director works with both documentary and fiction. Her work is exhibited as frequently in cinemas as in art galleries. Borg's work explores political alternatives and personal "otherness" and is often focused on the deconstruction of culture, economy, sexuality, mythology and language itself.
