Broomberg + Chnarin‘Alongside Jeremy Deller, Broomberg and Chanarin are arguably the most politically engaged artists working in Britain today.’ – Sean O’Hagan, The Guardian

The work of Broomberg and Chanarin explores the politics of documentary, the power of images, and relationships between photography and war. In 2013 they were awarded the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize for War Primer 2: a re-working of Bertold Brecht’s in an age of spectacle and terror. Most recently they were awarded the ICP Infinity Award 2014 for their publication, Holy Bible: a powerful study of c photography, religion, and conflict as parallel mechanisms of power and control.

Broomberg and Chanarin have exhibited internationally at venues including Tate Modern, Tate Britain, MOMA, Apexart, The Gwagnju Biennale, the Stedelijk Museum, the International Center of Photography, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, and The Photographers Gallery.

Organised in collaboration with Brighton Photo Biennial
