Prize giving ceremony of Stiftung für Kunst und Wissenschaft
The reward of the foundation Stiftung für Kunst und Wissenschaft that ellocates an amount of 15.000 Euro once a year to award distinguished cultural achievements in Baden-Wurttemberg is this year parted by the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and the Stankowski-Stiftung in equal measure.
Dr. Max Gögler, chairman of the foundation: “Both, Künstlerhaus and the Stankowski-Stiftung essentially contribute to the cultural life in Baden-Wurttemberg and beyond. Regardless of the differences of the two awardees, these institutions share a common concept: Both separate themselves from the classical image of a museum and reveal art and artists to public space. The art abandoned its frames.”
