"Many thanks to all of the painters"
Awards ceremony by the Stiftung Dieter Krieg (Dieter Krieg Foundation)

"Many thanks to all of the painters" - this is the title of an audiotape Dieter Krieg made in 1975/76, which runs 147 hours and 20 minutes. Eight female and eleven male voices read out in alphabetical order the first and last names of all of the artists listed in the 36 volumes of the Thieme-Becker encyclopedia. This homage to all artists is now the title of the artist prize sponsored by the Stiftung Dieter Krieg, to be awarded for the first time in 2012--in honor of Dieter Krieg's 75th birthday. The prizewinner - nominated by the curators at Kolumba - is the artist Norbert Schwontkowski, born in 1949, who lives in Bremen. The prize money will go to purchase works by this Bremen artist for the Kolumba collection. The awards ceremony will take place in the Dieter Krieg room of the exhibition "thinking". Admission is free on this occasion.
