The artist Hans Haacke (* 1936) receives the Arnold-Bode-Prize 2019, which is awarded every two years. The prize is given for exceptional achievements in the field of “contemporary art”. The award ceremony at the Kasseler Kunstverein will take place on October 30, 2019.


Commenting on this year's Prize winner, Head of the Department of Culture of the City of Kassel Susanne Völker said: "Hans Haacke is looking back at a long and distinguished career as an internationally respected conceptual artist. As a multiple documenta participant, he also is connected to Kassel in a special way. I am therefore delighted that this year we can award this renowned prize to Haacke."
