In 2012, the Berlin Hyp and PREVIEW BERLIN awarded a joint art prize for the first time. This annual prize is designed to promote young artists and art university graduates.
The winners are given the opportunity to exhibit their work as part of a solo exhibition in the Berlin Hyp showrooms.
In 2012, the prize was awarded to Andrei Pirrwitz, represented by the gallery Riff Art Projects, and Sara Möbius, a graduate of the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle who exhibited at the PREVIEW BERLIN ART FAIR as part of the Focus Academy.
The second annual award ceremony took place on 21 September 2013 at the PREVIEW BERLIN ART FAIR. The jury selected Johan Schäfer from the HfBK Dresden as well as Karolin Back and Jessica Schäfer from the HfG Offenbach. Their works will be presented in the exhibition rooms at Budapester Straße from September 11, 2014.
