Ghost Citizens: Witnessing the Intervention

Ghost Citizens: Witnessing the Intervention addresses the removal of citizen rights by the Federal government’s ‘intervention’, (2007 - 2012) in the Northern Territory. Using a range of media, the artists look at the return to protectionist policy and the diminishing of an Indigenous participatory voice: the loss of citizenship rights, of the right to homelands and self-determination.
