The four artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2020 are Mohamed Bourouissa, Anton Kusters, Mark Neville and Clare Strand.
From an experiment with image-making, transmission and interpretation (Strand); to a photographic portrait of a farming community in Brittany (Neville); a conceptual response to violence, trauma and memory (Kusters); and an interrogation of consumerism, trade and disenfranchisement (Bourouissa); the four projects offer very distinctive approaches to the photographic medium whilst demonstrating its ability to accommodate and give form to a diverse range of practice and concerns.
This year's jury are: Martin Barnes, Senior Curator, Photographs, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, United Kingdom; Melanie Manchot, artist and photographer, based in London, United Kingdom; Joachim Naudts, Curator and Editor at FOMU Foto Museum in Antwerp, Belgium; Anne-Marie Beckmann, Director of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation, Frankfurt a. M., Germany; and Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers' Gallery as the non-voting chair.
The projects for which the artists were nominated are shown at The Photographers' Gallery from 21 February and will be presented at the Deutsche Börse headquarters in Eschborn/Frankfurt from 25 June to 27 September.
