"Call for Artists: Karl Ernst Osthaus Prize"
2003-01-31 until 2003-03-31
Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum der Stadt Hagen
Hagen, , DE Germany

The city of Hagen (Germany) established the Karl Ernst Osthaus Museum back in 1946 in memory of Karl Ernst Osthaus, curator, art communicator and originator of the Folkwang Concept. Starting in 2001, an international competition will be held every two years for the Karl Ernst Osthaus Prize, a cultural award by the city of Hagen, sponsored by the Hagen Sparkasse.

The prize will be awarded by a jury of renowned experts for the best design for an exhibition to be held in the great hall of the Karl Ernst Osthaus Museum. Applicants must be at least 35 years old and must already have had at least one exhibition of their own work in a publicly funded institution (museum, art gallery, art society, etc.). Once the prizewinner has accepted the award, he or she will carry out the design in the Karl Ernst Osthaus Museum. The actual exhibition will be held within a year of the award in cooperation with the museum management; and will be financed with the award money. The monetary award is 25.000 Euro. A catalogue will be published to document both the design and the exhibition itself.

Only those contributions will be accepted which depict details of the proposal within the floor-plan of the Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum supplied together with the application-form. The jury's decisions are final. They cannot be questioned by legal action. In case of damage or loss of material submitted by the applicant the Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum will be liable only if it's mishandling can be proved.

The closing date for entries is March 31, 2003 (postmark deadline). The exhibition of the Karl Ernst Osthaus-Prize 2003 is scheduled for September 21 to November 16, 2003.
