    August 21, 2015 - August 21, 2015

    Elger Esser will be honoured with the 2016 Great State Prize for Visual Arts of Baden-Württemberg, Germany, which is named after Oskar Schlemmer. The award will be presented to Elger Esser in 2016 at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe, Germany.

    With this award we put a strong emphasis in the promotion of contemporary art and to honor an artist who brings the boundary between photography and painting to flow. (Secretary of state Jürgen Walter)

    The Oskar-Schlemmer-prize honors artists with a regional affiliation who give fresh impetus to contemporary art and who have already found international recognition.
