Richard Mosse: The Enclave at Venice Art Biennale 2013
Throughout 2012, Richard Mosse and his collaborators Trevor Tweeten and Ben Frost travelled in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, infiltrating armed rebel groups in a war zone plagued by frequent ambushes, massacres and systematic sexual violence. The resulting installation, The Enclave, is the culmination of Mosse’s attempt to rethink war photography. It is a search for more adequate strategies to represent a forgotten African tragedy in which, according to the international rescue committee, at least 5.4 million people have died of war-related causes in Eastern Congo since 1998.
