Experimental Filmmaker Charlotte Prodger works with moving image, printed images, and writing. She has had solo exhibitions and performances around the world at major museums, galleries, and festivals in London, Amsterdam, New York, Glasgow, and more. Her videos have screened at various film festivals including London Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, and Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen.

Prodger was the winner of the 2018 Turner Prize and represented Scotland at the 2019 Venice Biennale. Her writing has been published in Frieze, F.R. DAVID, 2HB, and The Happy Hypocrite.

Her writing will expand on her ongoing enquiry into “the intertwined relationship between language, place, time, and identity.”
