To mark its centenary, the historian Axel Schildt wrote a history of the Possehl Foundation: “POSSEHL. History and Character of a Foundation” was published at the start of our jubilee year and is available from bookshops.
Who are we today? This was the question posed in the magazine “ALL THAT IS GOOD & BEAUTIFUL? The Possehl Foundation in Lübeck” from brand eins Wissen, a publishing house based in Hamburg. A copy of the booklet can be obtained from the foyer of Possehl’s offices and various other places in Lübeck. It is available to download and the print version can also be ordered here.
The internationally renowned Colombian artist Doris Salcedo received the first Possehl Prize for International Art in the Kunsthalle St. Annen in Lübeck in 2019. The catalogue of her first solo exhibition in Germany was published by the curator of the exhibition, Oliver Zybok, on behalf of the Possehl Foundation. It is available from the publisher, Buchhandlung WALTHER KÖNIG: firstname.lastname@example.org; www.buchhandlung-walther-koenig.de.
Every year we report on a selection of the projects the Possehl Foundation has funded over the previous twelve months. Our last two yearbooks can be downloaded here:
