AESCHLIMANN CORTI-GRANT 2020

The exhibition 2020 at Kunsthaus Pasquart has had to be cancelled due to the Corona Pandemic.

For this year’s award of the Aeschlimann Corti-Grant, the prizewinners will each be honoured individually with a video portrait. The works of the participating artists will also be presented in a video compilation. The video portraits and the video compilation can be viewed on the BKG website from the second half of 2020. The film works will also be integrated into the exhibition of the AC Grant 2021, which will take place at Kunsthaus Pasquart.

The first jury meeting took place on 26 February 2020. From a total of 65 submissions, the jury selected the works for the originally planned exhibition in several rounds of detailed discussions. The second round of judging took place on 14 April 2020. The winners of the main and encouragement grants were chosen from among those artists selected for the second jury round.
