euward-exhibition extended until August 15th

The exhibition „Felix Brenner, Andreas Maus, Kar Hang Mui. euward8“ at Haus der Kunst in Munich is extended until August 15th 2021. 


Euward is the most important award internationally for art in the context of mental disability. 2021 it was awarded already for the eighth time. In recent years, each competition received submissions from between 300 and 800 artists from over 25 European countries. 340 artists have entered this year’s competition. Recipients were awarded with cash prizes and a catalogue of their oeuvre, totalling 19.000 Euros in value.


For the first time Haus der Kunst in Munich presents the works of the three award winners and the other nominated artists of euward8 as a part of its regular annual programme. So the focus ist on the artists - entirely in the spirit of the award, its goal is to establish their works in context of contemporary art.


The jury has chosen the three euward8 award winners, but again there is also an Public Award - and it has also been extendet!  Shortly until the end of the exhibition, art lovers can cast their vote to decide who will receive the Public Award. All 16 artists who were nominated for euward8 are up for selection. The undoted prize will be awarded at the closing event at Haus der Kunst.
