Julian Rosefeldt: In the Land of Drought

19 Apr 2019 - 29 Sep 2019

The NGV presents the Australian premiere of Julian Rosefeldt’s latest work, In the Land of Drought 2015/2017. The German artist and filmmaker is internationally renowned for his visually opulent and meticulously choreographed moving-image artworks.

Shot entirely by drone in Morocco and Germany, In the Land of Drought2015/2017 is set in an imaginary post-Anthropocene world and confronts the relationship between humanity and its impact on the world. The camera’s bird’s-eye view observes an army of ‘scientists’ emerging to investigate the archaeological remnants of civilisation after humanity has made itself extinct.

Composed of meditative images and atmospheric sounds, the immersive 43-minute film resonates with current concerns about environmental damage and climate change.
