About MK Award

The MK Award Foundation pays homage to the creative legacy of gallery owners Emmo Grofsmid (1951-2011) and Karmin Kartowikromo (1948-2011) of the former MKgallery Rotterdam/Berlin.

The MK Award stimulates and celebrates visual artists that are working consistently to create an idiosyncratic oeuvre, keeping away from any hypes-of-the-day.

The MK Award is a prize for visual art, intended for visual artists that are working consistently to create an idiosyncratic oeuvre, keeping away from any hypes-of-the-day. The MK Award does not discriminate as to gender, age or artistic medium.

The MK Award Foundation is an initiative by artists and friends of the former MKgalerie Rotterdam/Berlin. The MK Award is funded by private individuals, by companies and institutions – they may help enable this new art award by donations or gifts, or by contributions and support in kind.

Previous winners of the MK Award include Melanie Bonajo (2013) and Gil & Moti (2015).
