Marina Naprushkina erhält ECF Princess Margriet Award for Culture
Berlin-based artist Marina Naprushkina’s multi-media projects, including video, installation and newspapers, have been organised since 2007 under the imaginary Office for Anti-Propaganda. Informed by her own experience growing up in Belarus, Naprushkina examines the structure of authoritarian systems to determine the role of art and creative activism in changing the political status quo. Naprushkina was nominated with special reference to her project Neue Nachbarschaft//Moabit, a self-organising community in Moabit with self-empowerment at its heart. It is here that old and new Berliners are finding collaborative ways of living together, opening up art’s potential to contribute to Europe’s common future.
