The four shortlisted artists are:
Forensic Architecture: an interdisciplinary team that includes architects, filmmakers, lawyers and scientists, Forensic Architecture’s work uses the built environment as a starting point for explorations intohuman rights violations.
Naeem Mohaiemen: encompassing films, installations, and essays, his practice investigates transnational left politics in the period after the Second World War, the legacies of decolonisation and the erasing and rewriting of memories of political utopias.
Charlotte Prodger works predominantly with moving image, sculpture, writing and performance. Her work explores issues surrounding queer identity, landscape, language technology and time.
Luke Willis Thompson: working across film, performance, installation and sculpture, his works tackle traumatic histories of class, racial and social inequality, institutional violence, colonialism and forced migration.
