The American Academy in Berlin is thrilled to welcome Chicago-based artist Kerry James Marshall for a two-week residency as its first Max Beckmann Distinguished Visitor. Two important recent works by Marshall will be generously loaned to the Academy for this occasion. Marshall is best known for his stark, large-scale narrative paintings that focus on African-American subjects and thereby comment on the exclusion of black identity from Western art.
The American Academy in Berlin is pleased to announce that Federal Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble will be the recipient of the 2017 Henry A. Kissinger Prize. The ceremony will take place on June 20, 2017.
