Visiting Artist’s Talk – Mishka Henner

For our first Visiting Artist's Talk for the new academic year, we welcome Mishka Henner.

Mishka Henner is a visual artist born in Belgium and living in the UK.

His varied practice navigates through the digital terrain to focus on key subjects of cultural and geo-political interest. He often produces books, films, photographic, and sculptural works that reflect on cultural and industrial infrastructures in a process involving extensive documentary research combined with the meticulous reconstruction of imagery from materials sourced online.

His work has featured in group shows at the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Centre Pompidou, Paris and Centre Pompidou Metz, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Hasselblad Foundation, Gothenburg, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, FOAM Amsterdam, and Turner Contemporary, Margate.

In 2013, he was awarded the Infinity Award for Art by the International Center of Photography and was shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. In 2014, he was on the shortlist for the Prix Pictet for his large-scale works focusing on landscapes carved by the oil and beef industries of America.
