FOUNDATION, PRESENTATION AT THE KUNSTHAUS ZÜRICH
Michelangelo Pistoletto is the eighteenth artist and the first Italian to receive Europe’s best endowed art award. It is his personal wish that his art should speak for him. The Foundation Board will therefore present the prize to him in a small private ceremony at the Kunsthaus Zürich.
The prize was originally the initiative of Roswitha Haftmann (1924–1998), whose Foundation has awarded it since 2001 to a living artist who has created an oeuvre of outstanding quality. The winner is chosen by the Foundation Board, which includes the directors of the Kunstmuseum Bern, the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and the Kunsthaus Zürich as well as other members co-opted by the Board.
