The 25th Wolfgang Hahn Prize will be awarded to Brazilian artist Jac Leirner. The Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst am Museum Ludwig, in Cologne, Germany, has celebrated the award for years as a way of honoring contemporary artists who have little recognition in the country. The award will take place in April 2019, when the museum will organize a large exhibition of the artist. Leirner is the first South American to receive the prize, which can receive up to $115,000.
