The four artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2018 are Mathieu Asselin, Rafal Milach, Batia Suter and Luke Willis Thompson. 
Curated by TPG’s Anna Dannemann, the 2018 shortlist showcases diverse and innovative photographic practices, which recognise and celebrate the many developments within the medium, while also challenging its boundaries. All of the projects share a deep concern with the representation of knowledge through images, where facts can be manipulated and meanings can shift. Presented across the 4th and 5th floors of the Gallery, the exhibition features a searing photographic interrogation of global biotech giant, Monsanto by Mathieu Asselin; an expansive portrayal of the ubiquitous tactics of government control and propaganda from Rafal Milach; an encyclopaedic collection of visual taxonomies that expose the shifting and relative meanings of printed images depending on their context by Batia Suter; and Luke Willis Thompson’s deeply affecting filmic study of grief that reflects the personal stakes of visual representation. Collectively and individually, the four projects drive forward an artistic enquiry into the mechanics of visibility and concealment and interrogate the status and position of the image in contemporary culture.
