Lèche vitrines | 2021 Manor Art Prize St. Gallen
17 September 2021 – 6 March 2022, Kunstmuseum
Martina Morger is the recipient of the 2021 Manor Art Prize St. Gallen. The jury is recognizing a performance and multimedia artist who works steadfastly and uncompromisingly and who critically questions social and economic working and living conditions. She persistently names social grievances and transforms fundamental issues of our existence into sometimes physically exhausting and sometimes unsettling performances. Morger deals with the position of women and female artists in modern capitalist society in particular. She researches and reflects on female and queer voices and deals with topics such as technology, labor, and care.
