The “Preis der Nationalgalerie” is a special exhibition by the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. In 2024, the prize went to Pan Daijing, Dan Lie, Hanne Lippard and James Richards, marking the first year in which it was awarded to four artists.

Pan Daijing works with sound, performance, installation, choreography and film. The art of Dan Lie addresses questions of ecology and non-human life forms. Hanne Lippard primarily uses her voice as her artistic medium, while the film-maker James Richards combines experimental techniques with a finely tuned sense for spatial arrangement.

The jury for the “Preis der Nationalgalerie 2024” is composed of four international directors of collecting institutions. The new format for presenting the award looked at the exhibition as a collective conversation, seeking to expand the collection of the Nationalgalerie through the acquisition of four new productions.

Indeed, the prize-winners produced four new works, which will be shown in this joint exhibition at the Museum für Gegenwart inside the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin from 7 June, 2024 to 1 January, 2025. This group exhibition started off with three open days, during which entry was free, and also coincided with the launch of the second year of the open-air DJ series Berlin Beats in the garden of the museum.
