The Murmur of the Cosmos

Award Ceremony and Exhibition Opening Tuesday, June 18, 2024, 7 pm

We are happy to announce that Sandra Vásquez de la Horra will be awarded the Käthe Kollwitz Prize 2023.
In conjunction with the award ceremony, the Akademie der Künste is showing a selection of her works, over 60 drawings, photographs and objects unfold in the site-specific installation The Murmur of the Cosmos.
Sandra Vásquez de la Horra’s work focuses on the conflicts that are of current concern to people around the world, combining archetypes derived from our collective consciousness, taboos, questions of gender and sexuality, intercultural reflections and interrogations of spiritual practice. She uses dreams, the subconscious and memories to create a poetic visual world between the imaginary and the real, with human existence at its centre.
