The 2016 Katarzyna Kobro Award for Karolina Wiktor

On Friday, the 15th of December, the ceremony of the presentation of the Katarzyna Kobro Award Artists to Artists was held at Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz. The Award is meant to honour artists demonstrating creative artistic pursuit and progressive stance. This year the laureate is Karolina Wiktor.

The award was given for “consistent and emancipatory work in which the resistance against the corporal crisis was a tool for creating a new language. For experimentation at the junction of visual arts, literature and neuroscience. For the exceptional belief in art as a way of describing the experience of the body and the mind as well as a  medium for overcoming their limitations.”

The Karzyna Kobro Award

The idea of the annual Katarzyna Kobro Award came from Professor Józef Robakowski and Nika Strzemińska(Katarzyna Kobro and Władysław Strzemiński’s daughter).

The Award is meant to honour artists demonstrating creative artistic pursuit and progressive stance. Originally the Award was granted privately at Galeria Wschodnia gallery, and since 2011 the event has been organised by Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź.
