Open Rooms #19: Moral Turpitude

THURS 9 DECEMBER / 7–8PM / LIVE ON TWITCH

BOOK HERE

 

Join us live on Twitch for Open Rooms #19: Moral Turpitude, where Roxana and Pablo Allison will be in conversation with Savannah Dodd, founder of the Photography Ethics Centre on the project Moral Turpitude.

Moral Turpitude (2019-2021) is not a coincidence, but a result – a sequel – derived from Roxana and Pablo’s previous personal story, Operation Jurassic (2010-2018), which documents their first encounter with the British criminal justice system.

Moral Turpitude portrays a second chapter of incarceration, this time in the USA at the hands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). A shared experience of confusion where the missing link is two words enclosing an unclear meaning but a severe consequence.

Through drawings, legal paperwork, personal documents, photographs and words, Moral Turpitude portrays a lived experience common to thousands of Latin American migrants. Remotely conceived, each one from their own side of the story and geography, Roxana and Pablo’s personal testimony attempts to offer a window into the complex and multi-layered legal limbo that hundreds of migrants experience while highlighting the vital role that family and support networks play in someone’s release.

The publication released in August 2021 can be purchased from the photographer’s websites, Open Eye Gallery, Village Books and the ICA in London.

 

Speakers bios:

Brother and sister Pablo and Roxana Allison were born in Manchester (UK) and grew up in Mexico City. Their socially driven work focuses on themes of migration, displacement and justice. They combine collaborative photography projects with their own individual practice and commissions.
