Anna-Sophia Berger, Oscar Enberg, and Zac Langdon-Pole
Since 1953, the Association of Arts and Culture of the German economy at the federation of German Industries e.v. has awarded the annual ARS VIVA Prize to young artists living in Germany, whose works are distinguished by their pioneering potential. This years recipients are fashion-trained sculptor and installation artist Anna-Sophie Berger (b. 1989), New Zealand sculptor Oscar Enberg (b. 1988), and Zac Langdon-Pole (b. 1988), also a New Zealand sculptor and installation artist. The prize includes two exhibitions at renowned art institutions in Germany and Belgium, the publishing of this awards catalog, and an artist residency on Fogo Island, Canada. As always, the catalog is a well-designed combination of installation shots and single images of the three artists’ work along with essays by noted critics, curators and historians. This year’s essays are by Simon Baier, Gürsoy Dogtas, Gregory Kan, Laura McLean-Ferris, and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
