Rabih Mroué is the recipient of the 2020 Schering Stiftung Award for Artistic Research (with support from the State of Berlin). The 15,000-euro award, which is presented by the Schering Stiftung and the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe in cooperation with KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, also includes a solo exhibition at KW and accompanying catalogue. As part of the exhibition, the artist will create a new work.
The Award for Artistic Research has grown out of the Schering Stiftung Art Award, which from 2005 until 2018 was presented every two years to international artists. The award was redesigned in 2019 in cooperation with the Senate Department for Culture and Europe. The award is presented in cooperation with KW for the fifth time.
