|Competition and exhibition in the Städtische Galerie in Bietigheim-Bissingen
The city of Bietigheim-Bissingen has announced the ninth edition of the international graphic design competition Linocut Today.
The goal of the competition is to promote and support contemporary artists who work with the linocut technique, as well as
to gain new devotees of the technique in the art community. Three prizes of up to €5000 will be awarded. The winners will
be announced in March and the winning artworks, along and other selected works, will be exhibited in the municipal art gallery,
the Städtische Galerie Bietigheim-Bissingen. We are looking forward to it!
The Linoleum Carving Today award was created by the city of Bietigheim-Bissingen in 1989 with the goal of encouraging contemporary
artists, who create linoleum carvings. The competition takes place every three years and has developed into an important international
graphic art event. From the beginning, it was supported by the Deutsche Linoleumwerke and later by Armstrong DLW GmbH.
The winners’ works of art, the jury’s acquisitions and the other significant creations will be presented to the public during
a public exhibition held between the 20th of July and the 6th of October in the Städtische Galerie Bietigheim-Bissingen. On
this occasion a Catalog containing creations of various talented artists will be released.
