Ceremony and award ceremony for THEASTER GATES
Award ceremony by the Executive City Councillor for Culture and Science Veronica Kaup-Hasler.
Following the ceremony, Theaster Gates will give a “Kiesler Lecture”
“With Theaster Gates, the Kiesler Prize jury honors a conceptual artist who does not operate within the established system of architecture and the art world, but has found agency through a highly unusual and idiosyncratic practice. His artistic approach is characterized by transdisciplinarity, respect, inclusion and participatory processes. The most important goal of his work is social change, spatial transformation and empowerment.
By infusing his work with both impressive aesthetic value and a social agenda, he has found a meaningful role for contemporary architecture. In this way, Theaster Gates connects Frederick Kiesler’s historical position with the pressing issues of our time.” (From the jury statement)
