Kubus. Sparda Art Prize

The art prize “Kubus,” which was established by the Sparda-Bank Baden-Württemberg and the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, will be awarded in 2024 for the sixth time. The prize, endowed with 20,000 euros, honors extraordinary artistic achievements by artists with a connection to the State of Baden-Württemberg.

This year’s edition is focusing on drawing. Representatives from art institutions in Baden-Württemberg suggested a pool of artists for the prize, out of which a jury then nominated Thomas Müller, Gabriela Oberkofler, and Jürgen Palmtag. All three artists approach a broader definition of drawing from different perspectives. Drawing liberated itself long ago from the status of preliminary studies for paintings and became an independent genre of art. Now it even fills entire rooms and relies on multifaceted means of expression and the most diverse techniques: from pencil, to paintbrush, to spray cans.

The three artists will develop accessible installations, each on one of the levels of the Kubus, for their joint exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. The range of their themes comprises formal and aesthetic refl ections, social criticism, and ecological issues. The winner will be decided by another jury during the exhibition. At the end of the show, an public choice award sponsored by the Sparda-Bank Baden-Württemberg will also be handed out.
