Today, Wednesday December 4, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, Princess Beatrix, Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien, and Princess Mabel attended the 2019 Prince Claus Prize Award ceremony held at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam.
This year the award went to visual artist Kamala Ibrahim Ishag from Sudan, a pioneer in African visual art since the 1960s.
As Honorary Chairman of the Prince Claus Fund, Prince Constantijn presented the award.
Kamala Ibrahim Ishag was awarded because “her original, lively and penetrating artworks inspire the viewer to see the deeper layers under the objective physical manifestations of our existence”.
During the ceremony Prince Constantijn awarded other five laureates for their work in the field of culture, development and education.
The Prince Claus Awards are presented by the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development since 1997 annually to artists, thinkers and cultural organizations, particularly in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. The Prince Claus Fund was established on 6 September 1996 as a tribute to Prince Claus’s dedication to culture and development.
