The meaning of photography in art
With this prize, the Stiftung Niedersachsen has been recognising the significance of photography as a contemporary visual art form since 1994. At the same time it honours the exhibiting tradition of the Spectrum Photo Gallery (1972-1992) at the Sprengel Museum in Hanover. The museum is one of the few venues of standing in Germany, continuously dedicated, among other things, to a collection of contemporary photography.
