We, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, extend our heartfelt congratulations to Mona Hatoum for receiving the Praemium Imperiale Award 2019 in the category sculpture. We are very pleased about this special appreciation of an artist who is represented in our collection with significant works. Her installation Turbulence (black) is on view in our current exhibition Primary Gestures until 18 October 2019.
Praemium Imperiale is an important global art prize, which the Japan Art Association awards annually in the areas of painting, sculpture, architecture, music, and theater/film.
For the third time the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is awarding five scholarships to artists who wish to participate in a course at the renowned Pilchuck Glass School, USA in 2020. Artists who work with the material glass and who have their permanent residence in Germany can apply for a scholarship as of now.
The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is awarding Deutschlandstipendien not only at the Technical University of Munich, starting with the upcoming winter semester it will also donate five such scholarships to the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Thus it supports students in the study paths of fine arts photography and sculpture (focusing on glass) for one year.
After three successful years of funding education and training in the area of material sciences and ceramics at various educational institutions in Höhr-Grenzhausen, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung renews the project for another three years. Thus the University of Koblenz-Landau, Koblenz University of Applied Sciences, Fachschule für Keramiktechnik, as well as Berufsbildende Schule Montabaur will continue to receive funds for technical equipment.

Beginning with the winter semester 2019 the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung supports the renowned Dutch art academy Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. The financial backing allows the academy to offer additional workshops by guest lecturers and to acquire necessary equipment. The support is part of a large support program that the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung initiated for glass schools as well as glass departments at art academies in late 2015.
