Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation
The twentieth iteration of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize, one of the most prestigious international arts awards, was presented for the first time in the United States at Aperture Foundation in November-December 2017.
The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize celebrates established photographic narratives alongside experimental and conceptual approaches to documentary, landscape, and portraiture. The exhibition featured works from the shortlisted artists: Sophie Calle, Awoiska van der Molen, duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs, and the 2017 winner, Dana Lixenberg. All of these artists investigate questions of truth and fiction, doubt and certainty, what constitutes the real and ideal, and the relationship between observer and the observed.
