The Kunstmuseum Bern will be mounting the 2019 exhibition for the current ars viva prize winners Niko Abramidis & NE (*1987), Cana Bilir-Meier (*1986), and Keto Logua (*1988). Their works will be on show for the first time in Switzerland. The ars viva prize for the fine arts was initiated by the Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft in 1953 to distinguish and promote exceptional young artists living in Germany. The work of the prize winners must be outstanding in regard to artistic quality and they must evidence an awareness of the problems confronting our times. In connection with the prize the winners are given the opportunity of holding two exhibitions at leading art institutions for contemporary art in Germany and an additional one in another European country.
