Mutu was selected by the Deutsche Bank Global Art Advisory Council consisting of big-time curators Okwui Enwezor, Udo Kittelmann, Hou Hanru and Nancy Spector.  As part of her win, 37-year-old Mutu will have a survey exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin and a selection of her works on paper will be acquired by the Deutsche Bank Collection.
