Hans Platschek Prize
The Hans Platschek Foundation, which has annually conferred its art prize at art KARLSRUHE for more than a decade, commemorates the painter and author Hans Platschek, who passed away in the year 2000 and surely ranked among the foremost pioneering and reflective thinkers and critics of artistic positions after the Second World War.
Previous winners of the Platschek Prize include Jonathan Meese, Michael Kunze and Justin Almquist. Artworks by each year’s winner are exhibited in Hall 1, where they are displayed in dialogue with painstakingly selected pictures by Hans Platschek. This special kind of tribute always attracts the greatest attention.
