2011: Mona Hatoum

Mona Hatoum (Beirut, 1952)

Mona Hatoum has been a pioneer in opening up art practices to non-Western realities while revealing the connections between Western culture and transnational political and cultural events. In the judges’ opinion, "After Hatoum, the art world has become a far more open and less self-centred arena, a process that is still in expansion and consolidation. Hatoum’s commitment to human values of concern to all cultures and societies is similar to Miró’s view of mankind after his experience of three devastating wars."
