Preise

On the occasion of the Triennial, awards have been made to participating artists since it was founded in 1980. The awarding of the main prize, the so-called Triennial Award, is decided by the board of trustees of the Triennial. The prize money is 7500 €. In addition, two prizes are awarded for works of art, chosen by the visitors. The Guest Awards are worth 3000 € each and are funded by the Association of Friends of the Triennial.


Since 1995 a further prize has been awarded in the context of the Triennial: the Ludwig Gies Prize for Small-scale Sculpture, funded for the seventh time at the 12th Triennial by the LETTER Stiftung, Cologne, in memory of the sculptor Ludwig Gies. His most famous work is the Federal eagle in the plenary hall in Bonn and he also bequeathed a wealth of small-scale sculptural work. The Ludwig Gies Prize consists of a sum of money and the endowment of a work from the Triennial. The prizes will be awarded as part of the opening ceremony.


The following artists have been awarded the Triennial Award to date: Uli Pohl (1980), Helga Föhl (1983), Edgar Gutbub (1986), Franz Pichler (1989), Francisco Toledo (1992), Anish Kapoor (1995), Ayse Erkmen (1998), Tony Oursler (2001), Ron Mueck (2004), Stefan Demary (2007), and Friederike Klotz (2010).


The Triennial Award, currently worth 7,500.00 €, is decided by the board of trustees.

The Guest Award, worth 3,000.00 €, is decided by ballot slips filled in by the visitors.
