The two awards, which include a cash prize of CHF 30,000 each, are presented in the Art
Statements sector of the Art Basel by a jury made up of renowned art specialists.
In addition, Baloise buys groups of works by the prizewinners with the object of donating
them to two leading European museums, currently the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst
Frankfurt and the MUDAM, Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg.
Baloise’s commitment to fostering the arts in the form of prize money, purchases of art
works, financial support for Art Statements, and museum exhibitions for the prizewinners
amounts to some CHF 250,000 each year.
