The cross-disciplinary artist will discuss his nominated exhibition Free Trade (2019) and his wider research into the mechanics of power, looking at economic systems and ongoing tensions between different social and cultural conditions.

Biographies

Mohamed Bourouissa (b. in 1978 in Algeria) works across photography, video, painting and sculpture. His practice often examines socio-economic processes, invisible tensions between different social milieus and the related cultural divisions. Free Trade (2019) is a survey of projects produced in the past 15 years and is an interrogation of consumerism, trade and disenfranchisement.

Dámaso Randulfe is an artist, architect and editor based in London. Spanning writing, image-making, video and installation, his practice explores ecologies, territories and technologies in relation to the contemporary status and circulation of the image. His work and various collaborative projects have been presented at the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016, Venice Biennale 2017, Triennale de Milano 2019 or Design Museum, London. He is a lecturer in critical theory at The Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design, and an editor of Migrant Journal, a six-issue publication on the spatial politics of human and non-human migrations.
