MTL is a collaboration that joins research, aesthetics and activism in its practice. MTL’s underlying interest is the experience of being human and the broader cultural and social arrangements that make up our lives. As a movement, MTL attempts to describe a complete circle. Its direct action is never in support of, or opposition to, one side of a controversial issue. Why and who speaks on behalf of someone matters to MTL. This interest in voice is triggered by the observation that governments no longer represent the will of the people. On the ground, MTL circumvents, filters and reaches unheard voices. It talks to people about life and their situation, documenting the roads and geography that lead to conversation. Sometimes MTL is a passenger and other times a driver. It listens, witnesses and understands. Then it reports.
