"The honest truth about me is that it’s really a mistake me being a performer at all."

Tilda Swinton’s reflections on her role in cinema is part of a long tradition in which performers have struggled to control the value they create and receive proper recognition of their creative contribution. Swinton’s film and exhibition projects outside of the Hollywood system have shown her to be committed to an art or cinema as a social practice – one in which production, distribution and exhibition are of equal value and all serve to nourish the dreams and fantasies of the 8˝-year-old children we once were.
