Abstract

Warwick Thornton's installation Mother Courage, prompted by Brecht's classic drama, addresses the situation of Aboriginal Australians, especially artists, and the politics of their survival. Juxtaposing traditional paintings with contemporary media-based culture, the installation highlights the issue of authentic" Aboriginal art and displays Aboriginal artists' diversity and agency.
