Jeremy Deller is a British conceptual, video and installation artist. He won the Turner Prize in 2004. He is known for his Battle of Orgreave (2001), a reenactment of the actual Battle of Orgreave which occurred during the UK miners' strike in 1984. His recent film Everybody in The Place: An Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992 explores the cultural significance of rave and acid house on ’80s Britain.
Martine Rose is a London-based designer whose self-titled label has become a cult favourite in menswear design since 2007. Growing up surrounded by a melting pot of subcultures in south London, including the rave and reggae scenes of the 1990s, Rose's interaction with different communities inspires her aesthetic.
Trevor Jackson is a London-based art director, DJ and producer. Jackson's carefully crafted releases, remixes and compilations such as DJ Kicks and Metal Dance along with his Output Recordings Label have been cited as seminal compendia of experimental EDM. His design work, especially in the form of cover designs, has been widely exhibited.
