#Premiosprincesadeasturias

On October 20th William Kentridge received the Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts 2017, in recognition of his international career. He participated in Documenta X in Kassel, 1997, in the Biennials of São Paulo, 1998 and of Venice, 1999. In 2010, he was awarded the Kyoto Premium and the Dan David Prize in 2012. William Kentridge chose art as a career, but politics and theatre are deeply rooted in everything he does. His parents Sydney Kentridge and Felicia Geffen, both lawyers, were unfaltering opponents of apartheid. His father defended Nelson Mandela at his 1956 trial. He also represented two other Nobel Prize-winners, Desmond Tutu and Albert Luthuli, as well as the family of Steve Biko, who died due to police brutality in Johannesburg in 1977.
