The works will be on view at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, from October 19th, 2019, onwards. On the basis of these new works, the jury will select the final winner. The winner is awarded with 40.000 euro and a working residency at the American Academy in Rome. According to the jury, all four artists contribute to current and relevant discussions within the contemporary arts with particular and poetic modes of social engagement.
