Researcher, photographer, multimedia artist, and passionate traveller. Agata Lulkowska is a PhD candidate at Birkbeck, finalising her practice-based research exploring the politics of visual representations among the indigenous communities of Colombia. She holds a Master Degree in Film and Media Studies (Jagiellonian University, Cracow, Poland), unfinished MA in Film Direction (Silesian University, Katowice, Poland), and a First Class Honours degree in Digital Media Arts (London South Bank University). Alongside with her research work, she actively exhibits her visual work in wide international circles. Lulkowska's research is very interdisciplinary and addresses questions of representation, otherness and intercultural communication. She is particularly interested in the way film and video circulate in the international circles, and how the aspect of communication transcends the cultural barriers.
