A NEW AWARD FROM THE UDK BERLIN !
The next competition takes place in 2012
Berlin University of the Arts (UdK)
The UdK Berlin is one of the biggest, most traditional institutions of
advanced artistic education in the world. It has the right to award
doctorates and post-doctoral lecturing qualifications and offers more
than 40 study courses covering the full spectrum of the arts and
related academic fields. With its Colleges of Fine Art, Design, Music
and Performing Arts and the Central Institute of Continuing Education
it is one of the few centres of advanced art education in Germany with
Art and science are moving towards one another, discovering common
issues and working methods. The creative, imaginative processes in the
arts and sciences are similar, whereas the concrete realisation of
their results tends to differ. Repeatedly, this difference is the
source of productive tension and areas of friction. In all disciplines
of the arts and sciences, further developments over recent decades
have been characterised by mutual influences and efforts at
differentiation. Today, traditional dividing lines between the spheres
can no longer be maintained; they are being newly defined and
presented in their permeability.
This competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists
(fine art, media, architecture, design, music, theatre, visual
communication etc.) and scientists to work between the priorities of
the arts or between the arts and science.
Individuals and groups are eligible to participate. Full-time
employees of the UdK Berlin, as well as students of the UdK Berlin and
other colleges/universities are excluded.
The deadline for entries is March 1, 2012. The registration form
including detailed information can be requested from the address below

The prize will be awarded on a biennial basis and is endowed with 7,500 Euros.
