From the statement released by Black Obsidian Sound System (B.O.S.S.), one of five art-and-social-justice collectives nominated for this year’s prize: “The urgency with which we have been asked to participate, perform, and deliver demonstrates the extractive and exploitative practices in prize culture, and more widely across the industry — one where Black, brown, working-class, disabled, queer bodies are desirable, quickly dispensable, but never sustainably cared for. … We demand the right to thrive in conditions that are nurturing and supportive.” – Artnet
