Kiefer Hablitzel │ Göhner Art Prize

 

The Kiefer Hablitzel │Göhner Art Prize applies to Swiss and Switzerland-based artists or artists registered in a Swiss university under 30 years of age. The Prize is awarded in close cooperation with the Swiss Federal Office of Culture (BAK) and the Ernst Göhner Foundation. As a precondition for participation in the award process, we now expect applicants to have obtained at least a Bachelor’s degree. Artists may apply for the Kiefer Hablitzel |  Göhner Art Prize a total of three times (from 2021), and the same artist may only be awarded the prize once (from 2021).

Additionally to the maximum of seven prizes of 15’000.- CHF each, as a special award, we will organize a solo exhibition at a Swiss institution for one artist, accompanied by a publication. This solo exhibition will take place in the year after it is awarded – for the first time at the Kunsthaus Fri Art in Fribourg in 2022.

Jury and process
The jury consists of notable Swiss artists and curators and a representative of the Ernst Göhner Foundation. In the context of the annual public exhibition Swiss Art Awards, organized by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture (BAK) coincidental to the Art Basel, the works on display undergo a second evaluation by the jury and the winners are decided.
