Aesthetica Art Prize Anthology 2020

The Aesthetica Art Prize invites you to discover and engage with new ideas. The works inside this collection survey themes such as race and identity, technology, Dataism, surveillance culture, geopolitics and the climate crisis. The Aesthetica Art Prize artists help us to make sense of the current state of play. We want you to engage with these works and question what is happening around you. It is no longer about accepting the status quo but a call to action – to redefine the norm. Featuring 100 longlisted and shortlisted artists, the book includes artist statements and critical essays from leading academics, practitioners and curators on key issues from today's industry.
