The Coburg Prize For Contemporary Glass 2022

“Big brother” object awarded with special prize of

Achilles – Stiftung 


exhibition from 10th of April – 25th of September 2022
Veste Coburg and European Museum of Modern Glass

The Coburg Glass Prize aims to provide a Europe-wide overview of current trends
and developments in contemporary glass art and again take stock of the situation.
The objective is to show which design and processing techniques artists currently
use, which thematic content predominates and whether current social questions,
such as sustainability, migration, political suppression, globalisation and climate
change are taken into account. It is also a matter of ascertaining how far glass is still
considered purely as a material or whether, given its numerous possible uses and
special properties, such as transparency, it is viewed as a complex medium with
multiple meanings.
