Turner prize 2018: art that asks timely, probing questions

kriminalisztika-theguardian.com - 2018. április 26. 18:54

The latest group of shortlisted Turner artists deal in real lives, dignity, history and legacy – subjects that demand examination in globally uncertain times

No one can say that this year’s Turner prize shortlist is an irrelevant, footling parade of art-world luvvies. What an interesting, serious and timely shortlist it is. Politics, personal as much as global, spatial as much as temporal, are at the core of the selected artists’ work. All, to greater and lesser degrees, use film and digital imagery – in extremely different ways. Not all the names are familiar.

Forensic Architecture interrogate not so much architecture as space itself – the spaces between walls and windows, roads and buildings, borders and intentions. Space is political as much as geographic. It is contested, defended and attacked. The path of a ricocheting bullet, the sound a particular gun makes, the pattern of a bomb blast: the Forensic Architecture group analyse and reconstruct, build real and virtual models, quartering territories and presenting evidence, sometimes in galleries and art exhibitions, sometimes in court. The question might be the degree to which what they do is art at all. One might say that even a still life or a portrait can be forensic, although the group itself disputes the term. They seem to operate between disciplines, describing the world, and events, in ways that are genuinely innovative, useful and new.

All That Remains by Sue Black – a life investigating death

kriminalisztika-theguardian.com - 2018. április 25. 12:00
A professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology, who works in war and disaster zones, considers questions of mortality

In 1999, Sue Black – one of the world’s leading forensic anthropologists – found herself confronted by a “nightmare scene that could never be adequately described”. In 38C heat, dressed in a white scene-of-crime suit, black rubber police wellies, a face mask and double latex gloves, she was standing at the door of an outhouse near a Kosovo village. More than 40 men and boys had been herded into this building and sprayed with bullets from a Kalashnikov. The bodies were then set on fire. After three hot summer months, they were now “boiling with maggots, fragmented and partly scattered and eaten by the scavenging animals”. It was Black’s unenviable task to retrieve body parts and personal effects that could be used to identify the victims, as well as to collect bullets and casings in the hope of identifying the perpetrators of this appalling war crime. The heat and smell made the task almost unbearable.

Looking back on this immensely challenging but vitally important work, Black says it was “an experience I would not trade for the world”. Whether in Kosovo or in Thailand, where she assisted with identifying victims after the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Black accepts that such forensic work is “a job that nobody else in their right mind would ever want to do”. But she doesn’t think twice before volunteering, believing passionately that we need to show “that our humanity transcends the worst malevolence of which our species and nature are capable”.

This unsentim­ental exploration has at its heart the conviction that we should not fear death but accept it
