Neuhardenberg (dpa / bb) – Several cultural workers have been awarded for their work in Brandenburg. Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD) honored the sculptor Sylvia Hagen with an honorary award on Sunday. The artist, who was born in Treuenbrietzen and lives in Altlangsow, was honored for her life’s work. The Brandenburg Art Prize was awarded at Neuhardenberg Castle.
This year the prize also goes to Fritz Bornstück (painting category), Daniel Becker (graphics category), Ilka Raupach (sculpture/installation category) and Micha Winkler (photography category). Julius Anger received the state’s young talent promotion award.
“Art can have an impact on all times. And when she encounters adversity, she also gives the right answers,” said Heike Kramer, General Representative of the Schloss Neuhardenberg Foundation.
The Brandenburg Art Prize is awarded by the Märkische Oderzeitung and the Schloss Neuhardenberg Foundation. It was awarded for the 19th time. A jury is to honor the diverse Brandenburg art in various categories.
