We are thrilled to announce that Simon Pfeffel is the first artist awarded with the "Hannes Malte Mahler - it is art®" art prize.
The "Hannes Malte Mahler - it is art®" art prize, launched in 2020 by the non-profit association feinkunst e.V. and announced internationally, has its first award winner. The performance artist Simon Pfeffel convinced the jury with his unusual project design: 100 interactive performances in 100 days in the Hanover city area. The art prize is only awarded every 4 years and commemorates the Hanoverian artist Hannes Malte Mahler, who died in an accident 5 years ago today (July 18).
„We were immediately won over by Simon Pfeffel, whose extremely variable performances re-explore public space in a way that is as surprising as it is subtle, subversively shifting the usual distribution of roles between spectators and actors by making the audience the agent of action," says Prof. Dr. Stephan Berg (Director Kunstmuseum Bonn and jury member). The project will be implemented from July 8 to October 8, 2022 in cooperation with Sprengel Museum Hannover
