American artist Bruce Nauman is one of the five winners of the 16th annual Praemium Imperiale art awards officially announced Tuesday at the Japanese Embassy in Berlin. The awards carry prizes of 15 million yen -- approximately $135,000 in U.S. dollars -- and recognize a lifetime achievement in arts categories that are not covered by the Nobel Prize.

Besides sculptor Nauman, the other winners are Germany's Georg Baselitz for painting; Brazil's Oscar Neimeyer in architecture; Poland's Krzysztof Penderecki for music; and Iran's Abbas Kiarostami in the fields of theater and film.
