With a distinctly political feel, the works tackle issues around conflict, race, crime and state-sponsored violence.

Director of Tate Britain Alex Farquharson said: 'The artists shortlisted for this year's Turner Prize are tackling some of today's most important issues, from queer identity, human-rights abuses and police brutality to post-colonial migration and the legacy of liberation movements.

"For the first time, all the shortlisted artists work with the moving image and it's thrilling to see how wide a range of techniques and styles they use."

The public will able to view the works from Thursday until January 6 2019. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on December 4.
