Sven Helbig has received this year´s art-prize of the city of Dresden! The jury praised Helbig for his radiance and constant strive for innovation, which does not only shape the german art landscape, but is also formative on a international scale. The jury further acknowledged how Helbig moves seamlessly between genre and is redefining classical music, thereby producing a new musical expression.
Helbig himself had this to say: “Artists have the privilege of designing ideals, as they do not have to solve problems. The increased distance however, creates new perspectives, which also have design potential beyond the stage.” (transl. germ. To engl.)
