Christian Thompson

From Standing Room Only, 1:47 pm on 2 November 2014

Australian photographer and performance artist Christian Thompson on his artist's residency for the School of Art and Massey University and Wellington City Council, and why he had to leave Australia after being branded an 'angry Aboriginal artist'. He says he's more playful than angry, though some of his images pack a punch. Christian made history by becoming the first Aboriginal accepted into Oxford University and is now based in London.
