Ane Hjort Guttu, born 1971, is a Norwegian artist, filmmaker, curator and writer living in Oslo. She works in a variety of media, but has in recent years mainly concentrated on film and video works, ranging from investigative documentary to poetic fiction. Guttu’s practice is concerned with individuals' everyday operation within larger structures – institutions of labour, education or politics – that define and interpellate subjectivities. Among recurrent themes in her work are the relationship between freedom and power, economy and the public space, social change and limits of action. Between 2011 and 2016 she directed various portrait films where a central conflict reappears: an individual dissident struggling to handle oppressive social structures.
