The first of the Mobile Homestead videos follows a full-size replica of Kelley’s family house front as it travels from downtown Detroit to its original location in suburban Westland, encountering and documenting urban decay and deep socio-economic disparities along the way.

The Mobile Homestead videos are an Artangel commission, with LUMA Foundation and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD)

Tate Film is supported by Maja Hoffmann / LUMA Foundation
