Meet Sonning Prize winner Mona Hatoum

Scott Burgess of the Daily Ablution has written to advise us of his post on this year’s winner of the Sonning Prize, awarded bienially for “outstanding contribution to the advancement of European Civilization.” Joining past Sonning Prize winners like Winston Churchill, Albert Schweitzer, Niels Bohr, Bertrand Russell and Vaclav Havel will be Mona Hatoum, a Palestinian artist now living in London. Scott takes us on a guided tour of Ms. Hatoum’s work. It appears that “Entrails Carpet” is Scott’s favorite.
