In 1989, two events proved to be decisive for the life of the
Ukrainian artist Ilya Kabakov (* 1933 in Dnepropetrovsk): receiving
a one-year grant of the DAAD’s Berlin Artists Program
for abroad and the beginning of his cooperation with Emilia
Kabakov (* 1945 in Dnepropetrovsk). Since 1992, all his works
were realized cooperatively. The Kabakovs have been honored
with numerous awards for their merits, among them the Honorary
Diploma of the Biennale di Venezia (1993) and the Oskar
Kokoschka Prize of the Austrian federal government (2002).
