Incoming by Richard Mosse

VIP screening and panel discussion moderated by Manon Slome


Incoming is a critically acclaimed multi-channel video installation, which employs a military-grade thermographic border enforcement surveillance camera to represent the refugee crisis unfolding across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. This spectral figuration of the journeys of refugees attempts to foreground issues of hypotherima, bodily vulnerability, mortality, state racism, biopower, necropolitics and the erosion of the human rights of refugees. The work is made in collaboration with Ben Frost and Trevor Tweeten and co-commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, and the Barbican Art Gallery, London.

Trevor Tweeten’s 16mm multi-projection installation Exquisite Corpse, Movement in Five Parts will also be on view throughout the event.
