"Both the Turner prize 2008 jury and Tate were made aware at the shortlist meeting that Daniel 
Birnbaum is director of the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Kunste in Frankfurt and that Mark 
Leckey is a part-time professor of film studies at the art school, currently on sabbatical. The shortlist 
and the winner of the prize is decided collectively through a series of discussions until the jury arrives 
at a consensus."

Hmmm, what are the ethical standards here, shouldn't birnbaum have stood down?
