the Deutsche Bank honors the Japanese Koki Tanaka as Artist of the Year 2015 / Tanaka follows Wangechi Mutu (Kenya), Yto Barrada (France/Morocco), Roman Ondák (Slovakia), Imran Qureshi (Pakistan), and Victor Man (Romania) as the sixth international artist to be presented with this award / “Koki Tanaka is one of the most original artists of his generation to emerge on the global art scene in the last decade / a shrewd observer of the most ‘indifferent’ matters of the everyday, he always manages to magically transform them into fantastic events with a sense of humor, offering open but pungent implications that reveal the uncanniness of existence,” explains Chinese curator Hou Hanru / Tanaka (*1975 in Tochigi, Japan) became known through installations and performances in which he implements everyday objects and material found in situ / a major share of his work consists of participatory projects that incorporate actors and exhibition viewers / Tanaka represented Japan at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013, where his unsettlingly simple experiments proved that collaborations can pose a huge challenge / exhibition: Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, Berlin 26.3.–25.5.2015 //
