Zero does not exist in nature.
Zero is an abstract created to describe the situational absence of value as perceived from a human perspective.
Zero Productions promotes new artistic practices, ideas, and ways of inquiring into the industry. We encourage a new generation of artists and curators to engage more people with the urgent challenges we will face in recolonisation. We work with artists, scientists, and people from myriad backgrounds and perspectives to create imaginative, inspiring, engaging projects addressing important issues of our time, from extractive capitalism and climate change, to histories and representations of race and migration.
founder - producer
Sıdal Ergüder is a producer, film director, writer and photographer from Turkey-based in London. She studied Journalism at Marmara University and did a Masters's in Filmmaking in Barcelona. She approaches filmmaking from an artist’s perspective, incorporating her knowledge of journalism, art, music, and photography, all coupled with an obsessive creative inquisitiveness. Ergüder’s narrative work is freely infused with many of these experimental elements. She is always seeking alternatives to the linearity of narrative construction. In this realm whether experimental or narrative conjoined story fragments challenge the viewer to form a narrative linkage.
