Elsa Werth

Prix Fondation Pernod Ricard

Elsa Werth develops a work in multiple forms: installations, sculptures, videos, artists’ books and sound pieces. The economy of work, the ways of working constitute the context from which her artistic practice unfolds. She takes into account ordinary actions, daily gestures linked to contemporary activities and rituals by designating them and destabilizing them through operations of displacement, counter-uses, disruptions. With a real economy of means, she claims anti-spectacular productions as a tactic of resistance.

Siempre que by Celine Croze

Prix Nadar Gens d’images

The 68th edition of the Prix Nadar Gens d’images awarded Celine Croze. Through her book Siempre que, published by éditions lamaindonne, the photographer recounts a visceral journey in Latin America. Celine Croze is a visual artist born in Morocco and based in Paris, with a background in cinema. She is represented by the Galerie Sit Down. Sensitive to the cracks that our society is going through, Celine uses cinematographic codes to transgress the world around her, to interfere in the flaws of those she watches.

Alessandra Ferrini


Alessandra Ferrini, born in Florence in 1984, based in London, undertakes through her installations a critical analysis of the legacy of colonialism and Italian fascism, with a focus on topics related to construction of a national identity, and the relationship between Italy, the Mediterranean Basin and the African continent. Her work, deployed on several mediums, summons both images in movement, Instagram posts and conferences-performances.

Kiana Hayeri

Leica Oskar Barnack Award

Kiana Hayeri was awarded for her series Promises Written on the Ice, Left in the Sun. After the withdrawal of Western troops from Afghanistan in the summer of 2021, it became clear within days, that the Taliban would work to destroy everything that had been achieved concerning freedom of expression, women’s rights and education, replacing them with renewed fear and insecurity. Born in Iran in 1988, Kiana Hayeri grew up in Canada, and has been living in Afghanistan for more than eight years: time and again her work focuses in particular on the difficult living situations for women.

Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen by MVRDV

Habitat prize

Part of Rotterdam’s Museumpark, Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen is an art depot designed by MVRDV, which won the Dutch Design Awards Habitat prize. "With Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, MVRDV has designed an iconic building and a new typology for what a museum depot can be. Dealing with the collection as a whole becomes an experience, which affects not only the building but also the programming. Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen opens up a completely different spectrum of ways to present art and taps into layers that would normally remain invisible, such as insight into the art of conservation."
