Trophies 2018 by Zuzanna Czebatul
An anniversary — in 2018 the Berlin Art Prize celebrated its fifth year. The exhibition with all of the nominees took place in Kreuzberg from August 31 to September 28, 2018. Berlin-based artist Zuzanna Czebatul created the trophies for the three winners as a reference to the “most popular ice cream colors of the 1960s” and a wink at the phallocentricity of the commercial art world. On September 28, during a public ceremony at midnight, the trophies were awarded to the three winners. In addition to the trophy and prize money, the winners are invited to a four-week residency in Marrakech, organized in collaboration with Queens Collective. The fifth edition of the Berlin Art Prize was generously supported by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
