2018 Finalists

Aaron BRADBROOK

Artist statement: The working class began in 2015 and is an ongoing project that examines the extreme realities of working as a professional performance artist at some of the world’s largest arts festivals in the UK and Australia, including the Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals.

With a focus on social equality, gender diversity, sexual identity, empowerment and disability, The working class depicts those artists who use their practice as a way of challenging the status quo; either as activists or enablers of social change.

Photographed backstage in the immediate moments after performing, The working class is a collaborative process whereby each artist exudes the raw emotion and power they wish to.
