Munich/Berlin. On the evening of 4 June 2024, Pan Daijing, Dan Lie, Hanne Lippard and James Richards were awarded the Preis der Nationalgalerie 2024 at Hamburger Bahnhof - Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart. The artistic positions will be shown at Hamburger Bahnhof in a group exhibition and will subsequently become part of the Nationalgalerie's collection. The exhibition opens on 7 June with three admission-free open days. The BMW Group Cultural Engagement has been supporting the Preis der Nationalgalerie as main partner since 2006. In the presence of Ilka Horstmeier, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Human Resources and Real Estate, the trophies, designed for the first time by BMW Group Designworks, were handed over at the festive award ceremony.

The positions of Pan Daijing, Dan Lie, Hanne Lippard and James Richards form a lively dialogue with the contemporary art scene in Germany. With four newly commissioned works that will be included in the Nationalgalerie's collection, the prize supports the artists' development at an important stage in their careers. Each of the four has conceived a space that expresses different aspects of their multi-layered practice. The four installations interact with the architecture of the exhibition spaces in different ways, for example through sound, light, moving images and biological matter.

“I am thrilled that BMW has been a partner of the Preis der Nationalgalerie for many years. This collaboration is particularly close to our hearts because it supports young and talented artists who change and enrich our view of the world. The Preis der Nationalgalerie stands for innovation, creativity and cultural diversity - values that are also deeply rooted in the BMW Group. We are proud to be part of this inspiring initiative and to support the art scene in Germany in the long term,” says Ilka Horstmeier, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Human Resources and Real Estate.

James Richards presents an installation consisting of collage, film and sculpture from found and his own visual world, Hanne Lippard fills the exhibition space with two sound works from her own voice, Pan Dajing leads the audience into a cinematic and musical Gesamtkunstwerk and Dan Lie creates an artistic ecosystem that can be experienced with different senses.

The trophy for the Preis der Nationalgalerie 2024 was designed by BMW Group Designworks for the first time. Four vertical steel plates, inspired by the architecture of the Nationalgalerie, are set in a plinth. This forms the foundation – just like the Alte Nationalgalerie from a historical perspective. Steel literally plays a supporting role in the construction of the buildings, evident in the Neue Nationalgalerie and the historic hall of the Hamburg Bahnhof. Differences in the trimming of the individual panels, with the transformation from straight line to arch, symbolise the connection between the buildings. Steel-grey colour gradients and the colour spectrum reflect the interaction between the institutions and make each trophy unique.

Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, Directors Hamburger Bahnhof - Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart: “Through the new format of awarding the prize collectively, the exhibition focuses on supporting artistic creation. With four diverse positions, the Preis der Nationalgalerie in its twelfth edition shows once again pioneering artistic creations. We would like to thank BMW and the Freunde der Nationalgalerie for their generous support of the Preis der Nationalgalerie."

This is the twelfth edition of the Preis der Nationalgalerie, which has been awarded every two years since 2000 to young positions in contemporary art.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies.
