Broomberg and Chanarin: The Bureaucracy of Angels 
Art on the Underground
September 2017

Broomberg and Chanarin will present a new 12 minute film, The Bureaucracy of Angels, within King's Cross Station for Art on the Underground, Transport for London's public art programme, in September 2017.

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, lying beached on the concrete forecourt of Porto Pozallo in Sicily.
