ars viva 11/12 | Sprache - Language
Erik Bünger, Philipp Goldbach, Juergen Staack
The spoken and written word has long since found its way into the visual arts: As a motto, marginal note and quotation, as a collaged text fragment, as part of a performance, a video or a sound installation. The Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft of the BDI has been awarding prizes for architecture, music, literature and the visual arts since 1953. The 2011/12 competition for the visual arts was held on the theme of "Language". A jury decided on 3 current award winners, whose works will be presented to the public in Essen, Riga and now also in Bremen.
