Description:
In 2002, the late world artist Nam June Paik lent his name together with a drawing to this most important award for medial art in Germany. The drawing, which reads: "Paik NRW okay", commemorates Paik's 19-year activity in this German federal state – particularly in the two cities of Cologne and Düsseldorf – of which he spent more than 10 years as a professor at the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie. 1963, the year the "Exhibition of Music" was held in the Galerie Parnass in Wuppertal, is considered the year of birth of medial art. With this award the Kunststiftung NRW intends to revive the enormous creative energies which are active until this day within the works of this global artist, and to encourage a young generation of artists to break new innovative ground. The award includes an exhibition of the nominated, during which the first prize amounting to 25,000 € will be awarded as well as a newcomer prize for an artist from North-Rhine Westphalia for finishing a project amounting to 15,000 €.
