Italian Awarded German Modern Art Prize

The Italian artist Monica Bonvicini received the 2005 German National Gallery Prize for Modern Art in Berlin on Tuesday night. Accompanied by 50,000 euros ($60,067), the award is one of Germany's highest honors for modern art. The 40-year-old Bonvicini received the award for her work "Never Again," a room-filling installation made of hammocks in various materials and scaffolding. The installation, as well works from the contest's other participants, John Bock, Angela Bulloch and Anri Sala can be seen until Oct. 16 in Berlin's Hamburger Bahnhof Museum. According to museum officials, Bonvicini's work deals with "social-political circumstances in society and produces aggressive sculptures and installations that have an aggressive affect on the body of the room."
