Isa Genzken is the recipient of the 2017 Kaiserring (or “Emperor’s Ring”) prize from the city of Goslar. Inaugurated in 1975 and judged by a panel of curators and museum directors, the prize is organized by the city of Goslar and the Verein zur Förderung Moderne Kunst (Association for the Promotion of Modern Art). Previous winners include fellow gallery artists Sigmar Polke, Bridget Riley, and Richard Serra. The news was published in Artforum.
An accompanying solo exhibition at the Mönchehaus Museum presents an untitled installation made in 2015 that is comprised of seven parts: four wooden towers and three columns incorporating a range of materials including mirror foil, glass, plastic flowers, spray paint, plaster, acrylic, woven polypropylene, medication instructions, coloured tape, photographs, metal clips, magazine covers, and paper. The exhibition also features recent two-part works in which materials including photographs, printed paper and stickers are affixed to aluminium panels.
