2020 Wolfgang Hahn Prize: Betye Saar
06/01/2021 – 09/12/2021
For more than fifty years, Betye Saar has created assemblages from a wide variety of found objects, which she combines with drawing, prints, painting, and photography.
The Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst am Museum Ludwig purchased the assemblage The Divine Face from 1971 together with the Museum Ludwig for the museum’s collection as part of the prize awarded to Betye Saar. The work will be presented in the museum’s collection along with two etchings recently acquired through the “Perlensucher am Museum Ludwig” initiative as well as a collage, an artist’s book and the film Betye Saar: Taking Care of Business.
