In 2012, Ondák will play an important role in Deutsche Bank’s art program. Chosen by the Deutsche Bank Global Art Advisory Council, which is comprised of the renowned curators Okwui Enwezor, Hou Hanru, Udo Kittelmann, and Nancy Spector, he has been selected as “Artist of the Year” 2012. Following Wangechi Mutu in 2010 and Yto Barrada in 2011, with Roman Ondák the council chose an artist whose work emphasizes the draft character and conceptual approach of this medium. “It will be exciting to see how he will challenge the medium of drawing and the material of paper in the future,” says Udo Kittelmann, Director of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin, who nominated Ondák for the award.
