About the VR ART PRIZE

The VR ART PRIZE awarded by Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB), in cooperation with the Contemporary Arts Alliance (CAA) Berlin, is the first art prize for virtual reality in the field of visual arts with an institutional exhibition in Germany.


The prize focuses on exploring the artistic potential of new technologies, seeking to explore and critically reflect on how they impact on individuals and society. The prize aims to contribute to the structural establishment of this emerging medium in art.


In cooperation with the CAA Berlin, DKB is awarding 5 working grants in 2020 to visual artists who work with virtual reality: each grant is for a period of 4 months and worth EUR 1,000 per month. As of 27 February 2021 the works of the winning artists be shown at an exhibition at Haus am Lützowplatz (HaL) Berlin. At the opening ceremony, 3 VR ART PRIZES will be awarded, with a total endowment of EUR 12,000.
