Photography can open up a new perspective on the present, make us question our reality, and expand our horizons. Vontobel presents the «A New Gaze» award in collaboration with photography expert Urs Stahel. Every other year, the sponsorship prize for contemporary photography supports up-and-coming international artists with the realization of their project—from concept to exhibition, including an accompanying publication.
Dongkyun Vak wins «A New Gaze 3»
Following North America and Africa, «A New Gaze 3» is dedicated to contemporary photography in East and Southeast Asia: South Korean artist Dongkyun Vak has been awarded the Vontobel sponsorship prize. His project proposal on the topic of «Responsibility in the Anthropocene age» impressed the jury. Over the next few months, Vak will bring his idea to life photographically, and in the spring of 2021 he will stage an exhibition in the Vontobel premises in Zurich.
