Akademie Schloss Solitude is very happy for former fellow Kinga Tóth (fellow 2013/2016), who receives the Hugo-Ball-Förderpreis 2020. The prize is rewarded with 5.000 € and is awarded to persons, whose humanistic and/or creative achievements are in line with Hugo Ball’s work. Tóth’s experimental poetry and performances should have reminded the jury about dadaistic performances at the legendary Züricher Cabaret Voltaire. The public award ceremony will take place on February 23, 2020 in Pirmasens/Germany.
