Wolfgang Hahn Prize Cologne

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Wolfgang Hahn Prize Cologne (until 2006 Wolfgang Hahn Prize ) is an award that has been given annually by the Society for Modern Art at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne since 1994. The price with a total value of 100,000 euros includes the purchase of a work or a group of works, which is made available to the Museum Ludwig as a permanent loan , as well as a presentation and a publication.

The prize is named after the Cologne collector Wolfgang Hahn (1924–1987). Hahn was painting and chief restorer at the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum and the Museum Ludwig as well as a founding member and board member of the Society for Modern Art at the Museum Ludwig.

The prize is awarded annually in advance of the Art Cologne art fair in Cologne. Until 2006 this was the case in late October / early November. Since 2008 - due to the relocation of Art Cologne to spring 2007 - the award ceremony has taken place in April.
