By convincing ourselves that what is to come is actually buried in the past we will no longer be the powerless victims of our beliefs, but will instead be able to exert our power over them by choosing which beliefs to believe in.” Chris Agnew, September 2010 Chris’ Jealous Prize print edition is now held in the Victoria & Albert Museum Permanent Print Collection.
