An international, independent jury of experts, chaired by Kestutis Kuizinas, long-listed ten artists for the PRIXDEROME.NL 2009: Maze de Boer (b. 1976, the Netherlands), Rosella Biscotti (1978, Italy), Nicoline van Harskamp (1975, the Netherlands), Rob Hornstra (1975, the Netherlands), Heidi Linck (1978, the Netherlands), Ólafur Ólafsson (1973, Iceland) with Libia Castro (1969, Spain), Marc Oosting (1976, the Netherlands)m Sara Rajaei (1976, Iran), Helmut Smits (1974, the Netherlands) and Jasmijn Visser (1983, the Netherlands).

The four finalists, Rosella Biscotti, Nicoline van Harskamp, Ólafur Ólafsson and Libia Castro and Sara Rajaei created new work that is presented in exhibitions at Witte de With and de Appel. The winner will be chosen from these four artists and will be announced on May 28.

The publication PRIXDEROME.NL presents individual portraits of ten young and talented artists, with particular attention to the four finalists.
