What does the awarding of a prize signify? How is it possible to weigh up highly diverse artistic positions against each other? What does the selection of one art type and the associated exclusion of others indicate about the art canon?
In the spirit of greater transparency and a more welcoming aesthetic culture, in 2021 (like in 2020) the Falkenrot Prize – which has been awarded since 2005 – will go to all 7 nominated artists. As a statement of commonality, the programming director at Künstlerhaus Bethanien as well as its supporters have decided to focus on the autonomous strategies of strong individuals this year.
Due to the lockdown because of the Corona pandemic, the exhibition is postponed to 2022.
