The Follow Fluxus – After Fluxus 2020 grant for young contemporary artists called by the Hessian State Capital of Wiesbaden and the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden goes in its thirteenth year to David Horvitz (*1974, Humboldt, CA, US).
The jury chose from 59 nominations and justified the choice as follows:
David Horvitz convinced the jury with the complexity of his artistic practice and the critical discursiveness that lies behind his playful and strong aesthetic language. His use of simple everyday materials and means to reach complex ideas is inspiring. With his work, Horvitz strives to occupy public spaces in a sensible way - both humorous and critically - drawing attention to the challenges of current political and social events.
The grant is made possible by the Cultural Office Wiesbaden.
