Tom Kiefer: Pertenencias / Belongings

3700 West Pine Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63108
November 01, 2021 to November 30, 2021

Tom Kiefer photographs objects that once belonged to migrants and were seized and discarded by US border officials. The people who carried these items are bodily absent, but their stories are encoded in the objects, challenging us to examine our assumptions about what—and whom—we consider “sacred.” The exhibition invites reflection on what it means to possess and what it means to lose, and what it means to belong.

Exhibition texts are available in both English and Spanish.

MOCRA is open Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun, 11 am - 4 pm, and Thurs 11 am - 7 pm.

Please check MOCRA’s website for the latest information regarding Covid-19 policies for visitors to the museum.
