The Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst (Nationalgalerie Prize for Young Art) will be awarded for the fifth time this year. With prize money amounting to 50 000 euros, the Nationalgalerie Prize for Young Art is one of the most generous awards for contemporary art in Germany. The prize is awarded to artists under the age of 40 who live and work in Germany, irrespective of their nationality.
Four artists have been nominated for the 2009 prize who all live in Berlin: Keren Cytter, Omer Fast, Annette Kelm and Danh Vo. Their works will be presented to the public from September 2009 in a joint show in the Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin. After the exhibition has opened a jury will decide on a winner. The prize comes with a sale: one work by the winner of the award is purchased for the National Gallery.
