This year's Sprengel Prize for Visual Arts will be awarded at the Sprengel Museum amidst an exhibition by international, German born artist Friedich Kunath. The theme behind Kunath's installation at the Sprengel Museum is 'back-stage'. Encompassing painting, sculpture, drawing, video and photography, Friedrich Kunath’s work focuses on universal themes of the human condition: love, loss, loneliness, optimism and dejection, all imparted with a tragicomic pathos.
The exhibition is titled 'Your Life is not for You', describing the path of a psychologically intense and dark situation which in turn creates this surreal installation.
The award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 20 November 2012, at 5.30pm at the Sprengel Museum, Hanover.
