Weird choices for $100k Israel prizemain
The $100,000 Wolf Prize, presented at the Israeli Parliament, will be awarded this year to Stevie Wonder and Olga Neuwirth.
Wonder is one pop artist among thousands and Neuwirth (pic), while heavily subsidised in Austria, has hardly set the world alight.
On what criteria would this pair be selected in a year when top Israeli composer Oded Zehavi turns 60 and Bob Dylan is 80?
The board of the Wolf Prize needs to be replaced.
