Scott Caruth (b. 1990 in Glasgow, Scotland) lives and works between Glasgow and Berlin.
Caruth takes specific sites, communities or histories as his point of departure within his extensively research driven practice and investigates their relationship with documentary methods. In critiquing the role of systems that concern themselves with the politics of ‘evidence’, his work focuses on how individual responses can challenge preconceived notions of institutionalised mythologies.
Solo shows include: ‘Molatham : Studio Portraiture From The West Bank’, New Glasgow Society, Glasgow, Scotland (2013).
Group exhibitions include: ‘Time Isn’t Holding Up, Time Isn’t After Us’, The Old Hairdressers, Glasgow (2016); ‘Opposite Tendencies’, 16 Nicholson Street, Glasgow (2016); ‘Of Hearts & Minds’ w/ Winnie Herbstein, The Glue Factory, Glasgow (2016); ‘This Is Now : Film And Video After Punk’, Tramway (2016); ‘Twofold’ w/ Tine Bek, Glasgow Open House Art Festival (2015).

Cazzate Su Cazzate (Bullshit On Bullshit)
Cazzate Su Cazzate (Bullshit On Bullshit) is a solo exhibition and publication by Glasgow-based artist Scott Caruth. It responds to markings found in the archives of the Italian Communist Party in Modena, Northern Italy.
Doodles, sketches and defacements made upon meeting minutes, bills and internal correspondence by party members will serve as the basis for an investigation of surface and authorship.The project was conceived as part of residency between Fondazione Fotografia in Modena and the Stills Gallery in Edinburgh.
