This year’s nominees are:

Sol Calero (born 1982 in Caracas, vital in
Sol Calero is meddlesome in a “Latin American identity”
and a informative codes. In her expanded installations, elements of
vernacular architecture, a aesthetics of a tropics and social
communication are combined. Playfulness is connected to a critical
proceed that clarifies a antithesis of “self-exoticization” and
focuses on processes of exoticization that renovate images and
communities into stereotypes.

Iman Issa (born 1979 in Cairo, vital in New York and
Iman Issa addresses a aptitude and a participation of
hereditary culture. At first, her sculptures from a “Heritage
Studies” array seem Minimalist and oriented towards grave issues.
However, they are a sculptural and personal allowance of existing
works of art and informative resources seen by today’s perspective of the
artist. Issa’s sculptures, that any have an additional text, thus
resemble their archetypes in a opposite approach than as visible and grave similarities.

Jumana Manna (born 1987 in Princeton, vital in
Jumana Manna creates films and sculptures that try the
ways in that social, political, and interpersonal forms of power
correlate with a tellurian body. Her films wobble together fact and
fiction, autobiographical and archival materials, to investigate
constructions of inhabitant and ideological narratives. The use of
personal references is evil of her work, like in the
exhibited film about low-pitched traditions of a racial groups living
around Jerusalem.

Agnieszka Polska (born 1985 in Lublin, vital in
The references of Agnieszka Polska’s animation films
issue conjunction from a apart past nor from high culture. Rather,
her picture collage is an encrypted register of a benefaction that evokes
a common comatose called a World Wide Web. Pervaded by an
unsettling undertone, a connected films residence a state of today’s
universe and a purpose and shortcoming within it in a elegant and
personal manner.
