Paula Modersohn-Becker Artprice 2022
Barkenhoff and Große Kunstschau Worpswede
November 26, 2022 until 5 March 2023
Paula Modersohn-Becker is the best-known Worpswede painter. This year, the district of Osterholz is offering the art prize in her name for the seventh time in order to create a living memorial to this extraordinary artist. The prize is awarded every two years in three categories: main prize, special prize and young artist prize. Nominated in the 2022 Main Award category are:
Karo Akpokiere, Jody Korbach, Almut Linde,
Sarah Lüdemann (Beauham), Anna Nero, Stefan Panhans & Andrea Winkler, Charlotte Perrin and Stefanie Unruh.
While the works of the main prize nominees are presented in the Great Art Show, the works of the special prize winner Katrin Schütte and the newcomer prize winner Lucila Pacheco Dehne can be seen in the Barkenhoff.
All artists illuminate our reality as well as traditions and habits in their very own way. With their observations, they question their own practice and the perspectives of the viewers in order to give ideas for shaping the world of tomorrow.
This year, for the first time, artists from all over Germany were invited to apply. In an initial selection process, the selection jury determined eight positions from the approximately 400 applications. Furthermore, it named the special as well as the newcomer prize winner. Shortly before the opening of the exhibition, the jury met to award the main prize of 7,500 euros.
