| This year’s ars viva prize from the Association of Arts and Culture of the German Economy traces three exemplary artistic stances
The theme of the 2013/14 ars viva prize is “Truth / Reality.” Questions about truth and reality have not only again gained relevance in philosophy but in art as well—thanks to documentary strategies, travesties, and reenactments. These search criteria play a role in the works by the three prizewinners in various ways: in his objects, collages, and installations, Björn Braun (*1979 in Berlin) subjects things to a material and conceptual metamorphosis. In his films, John Skoog (*1985 in Malmö) sets out on a search for the truths and stories that are inherent in everyday moments and actions. The installations, performances, and films by Adrian Williams (*1979 in Portland) often revolve around the phenomenon that even a single sound can evoke a physical reality. Exhibition schedule: Neues Museum, Weimar, October 20, 2013–January 5, 2014 | MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main, February 8–April 6, 2014 | GAM—Galleria Civica d‘Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Turin, June–August 2014
