Foundland has been nominated for the Dutch Prix de Rome 2015 prize. Within the context of this prize, they exhibit all new video and installation work, titled Failed Futures and Extended Borders, at De Appel arts centre until the 17th of January 2016, with three other nominated artists (Hedwig Houben, Magali Reus and Christian Nyampeta).

Failed Futures and Extended Borders explores the possibilities and complexities of conspiracy theories as a way of understanding and coping with the rapid speed of unfolding news events, based on a series of interviews carried out with Ghalia’s father, Yassin Elsrakbi, during summer 2015. 

The Prix de Rome winner will be announced on the 17th December 2015.
