Winner 8th ARTWARD


ARTWARD – year by year!

On 9 January 2016 the newly appointed ARTWARD Jury met in Munich to review the applications for the 8th ARTWARD and to select the awardees. It was not an easy task; five finalists were narrowed down from a total of 284 international applicants. In addition to the formal, artistic quality the convincing general impression and idea was a decisive criterion. It was the intention to choose the winners with regard to their age, their previous artistic career and their pioneering contributions to contemporary art. We would like to thank all participants for their great applications and are happy to announce the following awardees:


Ting-Tong Chang (London/Taiwan) zum 8. ARTWARD prize

PUNK IS DADA (UK/Berlin) zum 8. ARTWARD junior prize
