Duncan Campbell is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. He trained at the University of Ulster and the Glasgow School of Art. Campbell was the recipient of the 2014 Turner Prize for his video work It for Others.
His art is often based on intense archival research and deals with a wide range of subjects including Northern Irish politician Bernadette Devlin, the DeLorean car project, and German economist Hans Tietmeyer. His films are concerned with these histories and how they bear on the present. In particular, Campbell uses his films to explore how social, political, and personal narratives are constructed and relayed over time.
Campbell is represented by Rodeo Gallery.
