This year, the Honorary Award of the Minister President of the State of Brandenburg for his life’s work goes to the painter and sculptor Helge Leiberg, born in Dresden in 1954. Leiberg studied at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts and became involved early on with the multimedia connections between music, film, dance and art. In 1984 he was expelled from the GDR. Numerous national and international solo exhibitions were dedicated to him, among others at the Kunsthalle Dresden, the Nikolaikirche in Berlin, the Mannheimer Kunstverein and the Museo National Brasilia, Brazil. Leiberg’s works can be found in collections such as the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, the Berlinische Galerie and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. In 2013, he was already the winner of the Brandenburg Art Prize in the painting category.

In 2023, the Young Artists’ Award for Visual Arts of the State of Brandenburg will go to Hella Stoletzki. The artist, who was born in Berlin in 1996 and grew up in Cottbus, is currently studying painting and graphic arts at the Leipzig Academy of Visual Arts. In her art, she focuses on Sorbian culture and the special features of her home region of Niederlausitz. Since 2020, she has been part of kolektiwWakuum, a group for non-traditional Sorbian art and culture.

The prizes in the categories of painting, sculpture/installation, graphic art and photography are each endowed with €4,000, the honorary prize with €10,000. The Young Artists’ Award is paid in the form of a six-month scholarship of € 1,000 per month.

The prizes will be awarded at a ceremony at Schloss Neuhardenberg on 9 July 2023 at 12 noon. All award winners as well as the Minister President of the State of Brandenburg Dietmar Woidke, the President of the German Savings Banks and Giro Association Helmut Schleweis and the Minister for Science, Research and Culture of the State of Brandenburg Dr Manja Schüle will be present at the award ceremony.

For Dr Heike Kramer, General Representative of the Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg, the once again high number of 296 submissions speaks for the continuing popularity of the prize in the Brandenburg art scene, also in its 20th edition. “I am particularly pleased,” Heike Kramer continues, “that in the anniversary year of the event, the state of Brandenburg is now acting as co-organiser for the first time and that the Brandenburg Art Prize thus bears its name with even greater justification.”

Among the submissions, 72 works were selected by a preliminary jury from which the prize-winning works were chosen. All pre-selected objects as well as further works by the prize winners will be on display in the accompanying exhibition from 24 June to 20 August 2023 in the exhibition hall at Schloss Neuhardenberg.
