Steve McQueen is awarded the Rolf Schock Prize in Visual Arts

Contributions to science, art and music are being rewarded with the Rolf Schock Prizes.

This year's laureates are the artist, director and screenwriter Steve McQueen, philosophers and linguists Hans Kamp and Irene Heim, mathematician Lai-Sang Young, and singer Oumou Sangaré. The prize, with a prize sum of SEK 600.000 per prize area, will be awarded on November 11 at the Academy of Fine Arts.

The Rolf Schock Prize is unusual in that it rewards both logic and philosophy, mathematics, visual arts and music. The laureates are selected through a unique collaboration between three Swedish royal academies: the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Swedish Academy of Music. The final decision is made by the Schock Foundation.
