Congratulations to BENI BISCHOF winner of the 2015 MANOR Art Prize St. Gallen!

BENI BISCHOF works in an unruly and intuitive manner to reveal a piercing truth with a wink and a smile. He translates spontaneous thoughts on social and political issues into quirky, fun messages of disarming immediacy. Most famous for his sausage and finger penetrations, Beni Bischof deglamorizes the fake illusion of exclusivity with his baffling sense of humor. The Manor Art Prize has been awarded in Switzerland since 1982 and is the most extensive private grant for young artists in the country. On the occasion of this award, the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen will be showing the artist’s first solo exhibition in a Swiss museum.

BENI BISCHOF – MANOR ART PRIZE ST. GALLEN curated by Nadia Veronese, will open Friday, February 13, 6pm at the KUNSTMUSEUM ST. GALLEN. The show is on view through June 21, 2015.

BENI BISCHOF‘s new book TEXTE published by EDITION PATRICK FREY will be launched on opening night. The artist will be present.
