University of Applied Arts Vienna: Monica Bonvicini receives the Oskar Kokoschka Award 2020

10.01.2020
Presenting the prize to the artist on February 28, 2020 at the University of Applied Arts Vienna

“The Oskar Kokoschka Award 2020 goes to the Berlin based artist Monica Bonvicini. On behalf of the jury I would like to cordially congratulate Monica Bonvicini. I am very pleased to honor an artist who left deadlocked disciplines and media long ago and who always refers to socio-political conditions in her work”, announced jury chairman Gerald Bast, rector of the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Bonvicinis artistic work is of high socio-political relevance and insistently invites to reflect upon social conditions. Monica Bonvicini applies different media such as sculpture, installation, video and photography in herwork – always crossing or leaving particular borders. In doing so she creates environments that make spacial developments and power structures accessible and tangible. Bonvicini questions the relationship of gender roles, power and control and discloses them. In her work, language is of vital importance, not only but also whilst using a dry sense of humour.
