Karel Doing


Karel Doing is an independent artist, filmmaker and researcher. His interest in experimental film and expanded cinema is reframed within a critical approach toward modernity and post-modernity, in search of new meanings of the real and the material.

Through the study of (phyto)chemical process, the recording of oral history and the (re)use of cinematic heritage he explores alternative knowledge systems. In many of his works the rhythmical, painterly and performative qualities of the analog film medium are foregrounded.

In 2017, he received his PhD from the University of the Arts London in Animation, Interactive, Film & Sound. In his thesis he proposes new forms of humility, doubt and listening to be advanced in today’s over-confident and exploitative human culture.

His films, performances and installations have been shown widely. He has given talks and workshops internationally and is regularly lecturing at Ravensbourne University. He is presently based in Oxford.

Together with Bea Haut he runs Film in Process, a DIY film-laboratory. His blog dedicated to the application of biodegradable chemistry can be found here.
