Hugo Ljungbäck (b. 1996) is a Swedish video artist, film curator, and media scholar. His research focuses on the intersection of video art, media archaeology, and the archive, and examines the materiality of the moving image and its processes of mediation. His videos regularly explore queer subjectivities and tell underrepresented stories about intimacy, coercion, surveillance, and historical memory. He is an MFA Candidate in Studio Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and holds a BFA in Film from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he previously served as Director of the Patricia Mellencamp Film and Television Archive. He is Co-chair of the Association of Moving Image Archivists’ Small Gauge and Amateur Film Committee and Editor of Artifact and Apparatus: Journal of Media Archaeology.
