BREMEN.- This year the “Kunstpreis der Böttcherstraße in Bremen” (Prize of the Böttcherstraße in Bremen) will be awarded for the 47th time.From 29 August to 1 November 2020, the Kunsthalle Bremen will present ten young and promising positions in contemporary art. Distinguished curators such as Johan Holten, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Bettina Steinbrügge have nominated ten artists from the German-speaking area.

The “Prize of the Böttcherstraße in Bremen” is among the leading and highest awards in the field of contemporary art in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The competition features 30,000 Euro in prize money for the winner and, in 2020, it will be held for the 47th time in the Kunsthalle Bremen. A prominent jury will determine the winner of the prize during the course of the exhibition. In the past, many of the prize winners and nominated artists have pursued significant careers. These artists include, for example, Tomma Abts, who was later awarded the Turner Prize, as well as Dirk Skreber, who received the Nationalgalerie Berlin’s Preis für Junge Kunst.

The following ten artists have been nominated for the 2020 Prize of the Böttcherstraße in Bremen:

• Bani Abidi (born 1971 in Karachi, Pakistan, lives in Berlin) nominated by Natasha Ginwala, Gropius Bau, Berlin

• Nevin Alada  (born 1972 in Van, Turkey, lives in Berlin) nominated by Johan Holten, Kunsthalle Mannheim

• Stephanie Rosenthal Direktorin des Gropius Bau, Berlin
• Christoph Ruckhäberle Künstler, Leipzig

The prize has been awarded for over sixty years. Since 1985 the prize has been presented in the Kunsthalle Bremen with the support of the Donors’ Circle (Stifterkreis) of the Kunstverein in Bremen (Bremen Art Association). They have also made possible the purchase of a work by each of the prize’s winners. The Kunsthalle Bremen has thus been able to expand its collection through significant works by Martin Honert, Ólafur Elíasson, Wolfgang Tillmans, Tino Sehgal, Ulla von Brandenburg, Thea Djordjadze or Daniel Knorr and Nina Beier, among others. Every two years, ten distinguished curators each independently select one artist from the German-speaking area.

Arne Schmitt received the Prize of Böttcherstraße in Bremen 2018 for his photo work “Der heiße Frieden”, which deals with the urban planning and architectural traces of the “Economic Miracle”.
