Roswitha Haftmann Prize, artists and art
(prize, since 2001)
The aim of the Foundation is to recognise outstanding achievements in the visual arts. To this end, the Foundation regularly awards the valuable Roswitha Haftmann Prize to a living artist. Prizewinners are selected solely on the basis of the artistic significance of their work, without regard to their personal circumstances (nationality, age, gender, etc.). The Prize is awarded in Zurich, as far as possible during a public event in the Kunsthaus. The Foundation can also instigate, support or present exhibitions representing the work of the prizewinner.
