For the fifth time, Erste Bank is awarding the ExtraVALUE Art Award to an artist who has participated in the program of das weisse haus / studio das weisse haus. The prize includes a solo exhibition in das weisse haus (April 22 – June 06, 2020) and a one month stay in New York City in July 2020 as a source of inspiration, as well as to establish new contacts and expand his network.
Carried out in the two stage competition, the jury has decided in favor of Fabian Erik Patzak and his exhibition concept "Direct Transit." Following a first round, which assessed the artistic quality on the basis of the submitted portfolios, eleven candidates were invited to develop a concept for the presentation in das weisse haus. Presented by the artists, these proposals were then judged in a second round.
