Goethe-Institut > Henrike Grohs Art Award (Senegal)

The Henrike Grohs Art Award is a roving biennial art prize conceived by the Goethe-Institut and the Grohs family in memory of the former Head of Goethe-Institut in Abidjan, Henrike Grohs. It is awarded biennially to an artist or arts collective living and working on the African continent, and practicing in the field of visual arts.

The 2nd Henrike Grohs Art Award will be awarded in conjunction with Dak’Art - Biennial of Contemporary African Art, held in Dakar, Senegal in May 2020. 

The main prize will be awarded by an international jury to one individual participant or collective of participants, who will receive €20,000. An additional €10,000€ will be allocated to the production of a publication by the Henrike Grohs Art Award. Two individual artists or artist collectives will be awarded €5000 each as runners up. In the case of an artist collective winning, the prize money is awarded to the artist collective, not individually to its members.
