Ars Viva 2018 at Ghent's S.M.A.K.Wednesday, 07 March 2018 16:21
Ars Viva is a prize that has been awarded by the Federation of German Industries for over six decades now. It recognises ground-breaking young talent. This time a field of over fifty participants was slimmed down to three. Contestants have to be living and working in German, but their nationality is irrelevant. This year the award went to Austria's Anna-Sophie Berger, who shares the prize with two New Zealanders: Oscar Enberg and Zac Langdon-Pole.
The three winners get two exhibitions: one in Germany and a second at a European destination.
This year Belgium's S.M.A.K. was selected for this honour. The exhibitions are held at different venues every year re-enforcing the prize's ability to strengthen international ties and co-operation.
In addition to the two exhibitions and a significant sum of money Ars Viva winners also get an opportunity to live and work on Fogo Island in Canada's Newfoundland.
