With this prize, the Akademie honours an artist who has done pioneering work on the relationship between photography and sculpture. His extensive oeuvre circles around photography’s processes of emergence, the technical conditions and the perception of photography. To mark the award ceremony, the Akademie will be showing select works by Kuppels created since the end of the 1960s.
The exhibition will include sculptural photographic works, films, videos, individual projection devices and installations for projections and the unique cabinet of the bistrot photographer Ferdinand von Blumenfeld. „The film Les marches du heros absurd” (2016) will be premiered as part of the show.
