Wolfgang Tillmans is the recipient of the 2018 Kaiserring (or "Emperor's Ring") prize from the city of Goslar in Germany. 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).

A related solo exhibition opens at Mönchehaus-Museum für moderne Kunst in Goslar on September 29 and will be on view through January 27, 2019.
