Özgür Kar is the winner of de Volkskrant Beeldende Kunst Prijs 2020. Jury chairman Barbara Visser presented him with the award during a festive gathering at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, which was partly broadcast live on Opium NPO Radio 4.
Kar wins € 20,000. Half of this is intended for a publication.
Kar's work can be seen in the museum until 22 March 2020, together with that of the four other nominees (exhibition details in our alumni calendar). Museum visitors were also able to cast their vote; the winner according to the public will be announced on 15 March during de Volkskrant Beeldende Kunst Publieksdag.
