‘The Bureaucracy of Angels’ by Broomberg and Chanarin

Oct 2017

Art on the Underground presents ‘The Bureaucracy of Angels’, a 12 minute film by Broomberg & Chanarin from 28 September – 25 November 2017 at King’s Cross St. Pancras Station.

The Bureaucracy of Angels records the demolition of 100 migrant boats in Sicily in the winter of 2016. These boats arrived laden with refugees from North Africa and while their human cargo were either sent home or absorbed into the asylum system, the boats themselves were never returned to their owners, laying beached on the concrete forecourt of Porto Pozallo in Sicily.
