Käthe Kollwitz Prize

The Käthe Kollwitz Prize, endowed in 1960 by the East German Akademie der Künste, is awarded on an annual basis to a visual artist in honour of a single work or his/her overall achievement. It has a value of 12,000 Euros.

The prize winner is decided on by a members’ jury which changes every year. The life and work of the artist should be centred in Berlin.

On the occasion of awarding this honour, the Akademie der Künste organises an exhibition to the laureate as well as publishing a catalogue. Since 1992, the Käthe Kollwitz Prize has been co-funded by the Cologne Kreissparkasse (District Savings Bank) as the body responsible for the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Cologne.
