Brandenburg Art Award


Brandenburg Art Award,

sponsored by the Märkische Oderzeitung newspaper

in cooperation with Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg

under the aegis of the

Premier of Brandenburg State

For the thirteenth year running, the Märkische Oderzeitung newspaper and Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg have joined forces to select the winners of the 2016 Brandenburgischer Kunstpreis regional arts prize, awarded in order to once again take stock of the latest artistic developments in the federal state of Brandenburg. In previous years, more than 200 artists submitted their work for consideration, which proves just how diverse and thriving the local arts scene is. In 2016, artists are once again invited to submit their work for the Brandenburgischer Kunstpreis, which is awarded in the categories painting, graphic design and sculpture by an independent jury carefully selected by the organisers.

For the eighth time running, the Brandenburg State Premier, Dr. Dietmar Woidke, will honour an outstanding creative arts personality with a lifetime achievement award. It is presented to a personality who has proven outstanding dedication to the arts in the state of Brandenburg. Special attention is also given to the promotion of talented young artists: Sabine Kunst, the federal state of Brandenburg’s Minister of Science, Research and Culture, will be awarding another scholarship this year.

The awards ceremony will be held at Schloss Neuhardenberg on 3 July. The accompanying exhibition, an established tradition by now, features a selection of the works of art submitted for the award and affords a unique insight into the art currently produced in Brandenburg.

A full-colour catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition; it will be available from the Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg shop or from the Märkische Oderzeitung.
