Today’s hot topic: Oh, no! FOUR Turner prize winners


THE four artists shortlisted for the annual Turner Prize are sharing the £40,000 award after they requested the judges to to recognise the causes of ‘commonality, multiplicity and solidarity’.

Themes explored in this year’s contest included migration, patriarchy, torture and civil rights. The artists asked judges not to pit those subjects against each other. They said they were seeking to ‘expand what it means to be British’, and said their work sought to take a stand against isolation and exclusion in a hostile environment with a ‘symbolic gesture of cohesion’.

Is it better to have four Turner Prize winners than one? Discuss!
