Since Protected content Protected content organizes the annual solo exhibition of the award winners.

This year, Susann Maria Hempel was awarded the € 25,000 HAP Grieshaber Prize of the VG Bild-Kunst for extraordinary artistic achievements.

In her experimental films, audio plays and drawings, Susann Maria Hempel addresses a place in the Thuringian province characterized by emigration, demolition and devaluation. Moments of a ghost town are evoked in which the extinguished testimonies of a formerly vibrant culture, such as the Stadttheater or traces of the internationally celebrated music pioneer Oskar Sala, are once again visible and audible. At the same time, the destructive processes shown are transferred to the cinematic medium, they inscribe themselves into the material itself. But the artist does not just visualize the disappearance of a small town. Moreover, it mines in lower-lying regions: In the dysfunctional backdrop of the place, it turns to its inhabitants, especially the outsiders of society.

Truly yours,
