KIEFER HABLITZEL | GÖHNER ART PRIZE 2019

22.9.-24.11.2019

Opening: Saturday 21.9.2019, 17:00

Kunsthaus Pasquart is showing work by the prize-winners of the Kiefer Hablitzel | Göhner Art Prize 2019 for artists under the age of 30. The group exhibition presents new works by Mohamed Almusibli, Natacha Donzé, Bernhard Hegglin, Roman Selim Khereddine, Nils Amadeus Lange, Sveta Mordovskaya and Valentina Triet.

From 229 applications the jury selected 17 artists who were invited to the exhibition within the framework of the Swiss Art Awards in Basel. In a second round 7 of these nominations were awarded with the Kiefer Hablitzel | Göhner Art Prize 2019. From large-scale paintings via multimedia installations to the focus on words, text and narrative, the examination of the body and physical realities, the exhibition conveys an impression of the variety and originality of a new generation of artists working in Switzerland. A publication accompanying the exhibition with short essays by international authors on all the prize-winners is published by the Kiefer Hablitzel and Ernst Göhner Foundation.
