First awarded in 1948 by the Berlin Senate in commemoration of the March Revolution of 1848, the prize has been given by the Akademie der Künste on behalf of the state since 1971. The Berliner Kunstpreis recognizes individual achievements in the disciplines of fine art, architecture, music, literature, performing arts, and film. One prize is awarded per year by nominations in each discipline. Former fine art recipients include Kader Attia, Isa Genzken, Hanne Darboven, Blinky Palermo, and last year’s recipients, the collaborative performance duo, Prinz Gohlem. David Schutter is the first American artist to be given the award.
