Video installation about institutional discrimination

As part of Holland Festival, British filmmaker and visual artist Steve McQueen will be showcasing his video installation End Credits. This video installation explores institutional discrimination and positions Afro-American artist, actor and activist Paul Robeson (1898–1976) at its heart. A celebrated singer and actor, Robeson became an influential human rights activist and communist and was an outspoken opponent of social inequality. For decades, the American government collected information on Robeson, hoping to catch him in a criminal act or find evidence that would allow them to lock him away. The resulting documents serve as the departure point for McQueen’s installation and are recited by a varied cast of actors.
