Possehl Prize for International Art 2022

A jury made up of representatives of internationally renowned art institutions has chosen the American artist Matt Mullican as the second prize-winner of the Possehl Prize for International Art. The award ceremony and the opening of his solo exhibition in Lübeck will take place in October 2022.

With the Possehl Prize for International Art the Possehl Foundation recognises living artists with a national and international reputation for their life’s work or an outstanding piece or body of work. Inaugurated in 2019, it is awarded every three years. The award consists of €25,000 in prize money and an exhibition in Lübeck. Matt Mullican was delighted by the opportunities that the prize will afford him: in addition to exhibitions in the Kunsthalle St. Annen and St. Peter's church in Lübeck, the artist is planning performances and installations in public spaces.

The prize-winner Matt Mullican (born in 1951) is a leading representative of what is known as the Pictures Generation, a group of artists who explored the impact of mass media images on everyday perception in the mid-1970s and so declared them to be an established element of their approach to art-making. By awarding the second Possehl Prize for International Art to Matt Mullican the jury has acknowledged his life’s work, which continues to have a strong influence on younger generations of artists. Matt Mullican lives and works in Berlin und New York.
