R.I.P. Germain is an interdisciplinary conceptual artist, archivist, lecturer and mentor. He focuses on disentangling the inner and outer wars that pertain to the Black male, through essays, interactive audiovisual installations and performances.

R.I.P. Germain's current practice lies in meditating on death as a construct, investigating the types of fallout that come with a physical death on individual and communal terms and radically positioning legacy preservation – as a process of activism – within works so as to convince society to reassess how it often chooses to negatively view, record and remember Black men once they have passed away.
