Melissa Dullius

Melissa Dullius is part of artist duo Distruktur formed in 2007 by her and Gustavo Jahn when they moved together from South Brazil to Berlin. They started making films together in 1999, first on Super 8 and later on 16mm. After joining the collective LaborBerlin in 2007 they started applying handmade techniques on the making of their films. Beyond conceiving and producing moving images, they also appear as actors and musicians and act as lab technicians. Distruktur's body of work takes form as films, installations, film performances, photographs, text and graphic. Their work has been presented in festivals such as Berlinale, Mostra de SP, BAFICI, Torino Film Festival, New Horizons and Videobrasil, as well as in exhibitions at Berlinische Galerie, Paço das Artes in São Paulo, and Vilnius Contemporary Art Centre.
