Heinke Both

The Possehl Prize for Lübeck Art was awarded to Heinke Both (*1964) in May 2021. The artist combines painting, drawing, collage and photography in her work, which deals with fundamental questions about the individual and ways of portraying what cannot be seen in representations of human beings. The prize is intended to enable the artist to create a new chapter from her body of clear and coherent work to date. She will be trying out new printing methods on the basis of her existing collages in a collaborative process, which for this solo artist represents an experiment with new techniques in close cooperation with other artists. Chair, Max Schön: “The Board of Trustees is delighted that this prize gives artists the opportunity to realise their professional aspirations and sometimes to conquer completely new territory. We are very much looking forward to the results of Heinke Both’s artistic research.”
