Alexander Schellow and Marie Urban have been working together since 2008 within the framework of films and performances.
Alexander Schellow is an artist and filmmaker. His practice is based on recollection-processes of visual memory by drawing reconstruction. His films and installations were internationally shown in various museums and biennials (http://en.alexanderschellow.de).
Marie Urban studied theater and cultural sciences in France, Canada and Germany. She conducted artistic research and was active as a dramaturgical assistant in the context of various projects, among others for David Weber-Krebs and recently as a director assistant for Philippe Quesne.
In the cooperation Schellow/Urban a special notion of the documentary element has started to emerge and take a definite form through the development of strategies for the involvement with specific urban structures. The foundation of index.film is a reaction to this development.
