Of course no one will see this, so here's the shortlist... The worthy ones are: The artists: "Yael Bartana focuses on the Israeli political situation and issues facing the Jewish community in her films. Fernando Bryce through Indian ink drawings explores how visual and written media has presented history and events. Ergin Çavuşoğlu explores migration and mobility, suggesting how we are all involved in the bigger issues of today. Olga Chernysheva uses photography and film and shows how people make sense of their lives in an ever-changing society. Chen Chieh-jen makes work as an act of resistance, highlighting how labour and consumerism affects those caught up in globalisation. Gulnara Kasmalieva & Muratbek Djumaliev give us an insight into how the fall of communism has changed values in society. Adrian Paci trained as a fresco painter and now uses his skills to expose the universal elements of our different worlds." No comment for the broadest social and political nonsense ever.. just plain...bumf.
