Throughout several films, shot while traveling the world, Agassi explores the on-camera presence and the performative idea about oneself. He often plays with the idea of shamanic masculinity in his performances and video works. The “African Fitness Gym”, a workout site built out of wood and concrete, exhibited at the Städelschule in 2010, is a critique of a modernist idea of progress, which he sees in consumption-oriented fitness studios. Together with Ilja Karilampi, he´s been collaborating on a series of projects focusing on re-discovering geographic areas through research and film recordings, most recently for an upcoming movie in and around Uganda.
