Berlin. On the evening of September 12, 2019, in the
presence of State Minister of Culture Prof. Monika Grütters and Dr
Nicolas Peter, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Finance,
Jardin was announced as winner of the Preis der
Nationalgalerie at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin.
After its first edition in 2000, the Preis der Nationalgalerie was
awarded for the tenth time.
The jury, consisting of Annie Fletcher, Director of IMMA – Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Anna-Catharina Gebbers, Curator at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin; Udo Kittelmann, Director of Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin; Philippe Vergne, Director of Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto, and Theodora Vischer, Senior Curator of Fondation Beyeler, Basel, decided after intensive discussions on Pauline Curnier Jardin (born 1980 in Marseille) as the prize winner.
The jury states : “After a lively discussion the jury awarded the Preis der Nationalgalerie 2019 to Pauline Curnier Jardin for her work not only in the shortlist exhibition here at the Hamburger Bahnhof but for her practice in its entirety. The jury grounded its decision on the Preis der Nationalgalerie's spirit to support the development and encouragement of an artist's work. The jury especially appreciates Pauline Curnier Jardin's compelling and immersive filmic and installation work. Not unlike a delirious circus, her work provides an unsettling experience based on the confusion of our time.”
Dr Nicolas Peter, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Finance, says: “Take a good look at the shortlist of the Preis der Nationalgalerie within the past decade and you will realize that having been nominated jumpstarted many of an artist’s career. As long-term partner since the award’s inception we wholeheartedly congratulate Pauline Curnier Jardin! It will be great to see what she may come up with for her exhibition next year.”
With the award Pauline Curnier Jardin wins a major solo exhibition next year in one of the Nationalgalerie’s institutions as well as an accompanying publication.
In addition to Pauline Curnier Jardin, the shortlisted artists for this year’s Preis der Nationalgalerie were Simon Fujiwara, Flaka Haliti and Katja Novitskova. The works of the artists are presented in a group exhibition until February 16, 2020 at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin.
In cooperation with the Deutsche Filmakademie the Förderpreis für Filmkunst, endowed with 10.000 Euros, was awarded for the fifth time. The winner is Lucia Margarita Bauer for Maman Maman Maman”.
The Jury, consisting of Nikola Dietrich, Director Kölnischer Kunstverein; Doris Dörrie, writer and filmmaker; Marina Fokidis, curator, writer and Director of South as a State of Mind Journal; Ulrich Matthes, actor, and Bige Örer, Director of the Istanbul Biennale, chose the winner from a shortlist of four candidates.
As a symbolic prize Pauline Curnier Jardin and Lucia Margarita Bauer received a signed multiple “Intuition” by Joseph Beuys from 1968.
After the award ceremony, more than 400 international guests and friends of the Nationalgalerie celebrated the two winners and the anniversary of the award with the longstanding partner BMW.
The Preis der Nationalgalerie was enabled by the Verein der Freunde der Nationalgalerie nineteen years ago. For nearly fourteen years BMW supports the Preis der Nationalgalerie as a long-term partner, as well as the Förderpreis für Filmkunst in cooperation with the Deutsche Filmakademie.

The company places the main focus of its long-term commitment on contemporary and modern art, classical music and jazz as well as architecture and design.

The BMW Group takes absolute creative freedom in all its cultural activities for granted – as this initiative is as essential for producing groundbreaking artistic work as it is for major innovations in a successful business.
