Biography

Pavel Borecký holds MSc in Sustainable Development (Prague) and MA in Social Anthropology, Audiovisual Ethnography (Tallinn). Currently, he finishes his PhD project “Living Water” on more-than-human methods and socio-cultural ramifications of water scarcity in Jordan at the University of Bern, Walter Benjamin Kolleg / Institute of Social Anthropology.

In his professional life, Pavel co-founded Anthropictures and completed several applied research projects in Serbia, Peru, Estonia and the Czech Republic. Pavel’s latest films “Solaris” (2015) and “In the Devil’s Garden” (2018) were screened at numerous film festivals and conferences in Europe and abroad. In his communal practice, Pavel curates EthnoKino, the film programme in Bern, and serves as a convenor of EASA Applied Anthropology Network.

What draws him out into multimedia exploration and subsequent activism are suicidal twitches of late capitalist modernity.
