Victor Man, Artist of the Year 2014
Exhibition, Deutsche Bank KunstHalle Berlin, Germany, 21 March – 22 June.
A spotlight on young art: the Artist of the Year award is committed to the present. Its aim is to acquaint a wide public with new and exciting artistic positions. Based on the recommendation of Deutsche Bank’s Global Art Advisory Council, which includes internationally renowned curators Okwui Enwezor, Hou Hanru, Udo Kittelmann, and Victoria Noorthoorn, the bank honours an emerging artist who has created an artistic, socially relevant oeuvre, one that integrates the mediums of paper and photography – the two main areas of focus of the collection. Victor Man’s work is enriched with personal memories, magical significance, and art-historical references.
