Questions of race, representation, and the body as a locus of political inquiry recur in the films, performances, and installations of Luke Willis Thompson (* 1988). Making works of sober elegance as he tackles the traumatic legacies of race and class, the New Zealand-born artist presents his first solo exhibition in Switzerland that addresses these urgent themes for our present.
