MMK Awarded for »Best International Exhibition«

The »Art Award 2005« of the Beaux Arts Magazinze in the category
»Best International Exhibition« was granted to the Museum für Moderne Kunst
(MMK) in Frankfurt am Main for the exhibition »Sturtevant – The Brutal
Truth «.

The artist Elaine Sturtevant and the director of the MMK, Udo Kittelmann,
received the prize at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris on the 12th
of January 2005.

In the statement of the jury it says that they decided in favour of »one of
the most controversial, ventured and exciting works of this epoch. The
remarkable retrospective at the MMK reveals its lively radical nature, its
influence on a new generation of young artists and the complexity of an
artistic language based on the values of modernity.«

These exhibitions were nominated beside the MMK: »The Unilever Series.
Olafur Eliasson: The Weather Project«, Tate Modern, London; »A Minimal
Futur? Art as Object 1958–1968«, MoCA, Los Angeles; »Utopia Station«, Haus
der Kunst, Munich and the »Manifesta 5« in San Sebastian.

The exhibition »Sturtevant – The Brutal Truth« is open for visitors until
the 30th of January 2005.
