The Kiefer Hablitzel Foundation bestows annual awards on young, up-and-coming artists. Following a multi-stage selection process, the prizewinners were invited to the Swiss Art Awards during Art Basel 2014. A renowned jury selects the award winners who in the exhibition »unter 30« [under 30] are also given the opportunity to present new works in an institutional context. In 2014 this exhibition will take place at Museo d’Arte Lugano‚ – curated by Elio Schenini – offering an insight into young Swiss art.
This year‚ the works are characterized by an exciting wide range of media, whereby in some cases old technologies are used and reinterpreted by the young generation. It gives us great pleasure to present the prizewinners of 2014: Selina Baumann, Jeremias Bucher, Adrien Chevalley, Daniel V. Keller, Matthias Liechti, Florian Lüthi, Thomas Moor, Bianca Ott, Darren Roshier, Marco Scorti.
