AV Festival 14: Extraction explores the raw materials that create our experience of the world, from their origins deep inside the ground, to their extraction, transformation and global exploitation. This AV Festival-curated exhibition focuses on the raw material of metal as an agent of global power and financial control, in response to Middlesbrough’s role in the development of a global iron and steel industry. It includes works by leading international artists Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, Simon Starling, Anja Kirschner & David Panos, Walead Beshty and Hito Steyerl. An accompanying installation by Rossella Biscotti & Kevin van Braak is showing at Platform A Gallery in Middlesbrough Railway Station, a 10 minute walk from mima.
