Antiquaria-Prize Ludwigsburg 2017


At the 23rd ANTIQUARIA PRIZE in Ludwigsburg in January 2017, the Künstlerhaus Ahrenshoop association will be awarded the Antiquaria-Prize by the jury for their artist books, book objects and other publications in the EDITION HOHES UFER AHRENSHOOP that have been part of an ongoing international cooperation between writers and artists for the past 22 years.

Since 1995, the Antiquaria Prize is awarded annually during the literary convention "Antiquaria-Antiquariatsmesse Ludwigsburg".

At the same time, book designer Friedrich Forssmann will also be lauded. The laudatory speech for our edition will be given by Uta Schneider, a long-time member of our advisory board and the circle of friends. Gerlinde Creutzburg will accept the award in Ludwigsburg. All book and art book lovers are cordially invited.
