The Falkenrot Prize was initiated in 2005 and is being presented for the twelfth time this year.

About

The prize winner in 2018 is artist JANA GUNSTHEIMER (*1974), who lives in Jena.
Jana Gunstheimer’s artistic practice exploits our world as an endless reservoir of undiscovered possibilities, tracking down its hidden and mysterious aspects. In her works reality becomes a conglomeration of labyrinthine rooms and fantastic stories.

“Detached from the simulation-fixated mainstream, our prizewinner Jana Gunstheimer projects her own dark universe of innovative pictorial ideas by means of subtle associations and radical perceptual shifts in the field of art history. From the perspective of the ethnologist, she allows compelling pictorial realities to emerge, which cunningly break open the old scheme of construction and deconstruction and so help to overcome a vital aspect of academic inertia.” (Christoph Tannert)

Particular thanks for their contributions to the realisation of the exhibition at Künstlerhaus Bethanien are due to Michael Schultz, Berlin and the lenders, Galerie Conrads, Düsseldorf, Peter Metzger and Rainer Weckop.
With generous support from the Governing Mayor of Berlin, Senate Office – Cultural Affairs.
