Artists at Risk (AR) extends its heartfelt gratitude to all contributions to the ARTISTS AT RISK PAVILION—Artists. Risks. Humans. Rights. held with the support of UNESCO on the occasion of the 60th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.

Only days after the launch Delaine Le Bas, whose work ‘Romani Embassy’ was in the exhibition, was nominated for the Turner Prize. We were also incredibly pleased to watch the interview with Hito Steyerl in which she says, just like Jörg Heiser in Republik Magazin, that the Ethiopian-Ukrainian hip-hop trio FO SHO, also in the AR Pavilion, should be awarded the Golden Lion!
