Minted in Enemy Bronze represents a decade-long film based practice by artist Justin Randolph Thompson. Supported in part by an Italian Council grant in 2021, with chapters of the film Al Lettore Benevolo presented at Museo MADRE in Naples in 2022 and They Remain at MUCEM in Marseille in 2023, the work was presented in a solo project at the British School at Rome in 2023.
The practice has developed a dozen film works dedicated to the excavation of Black histories in Italy developed through dialogues and exchanges with Black scholars, artists and activists at sites that carry atmospheric tension.
