Jürgen Ponto Stiftung


Ponto Performance Preis 2017


Empfang/Award ceremony

Hanke Wilsmann and Jost von Harleßem have been creating their own theatre and media apparatuses since 2011 under the name F. Wiesel and using them to successfully reanimate early cinematic history, dead emperors, Soviet science fiction or universalist architectural visions. The current expert jury of the Ponto Performance Prize 2017 found this practice of research into theatre as a multidimensional model and thinking space so outstanding that they have awarded the duo the 25.000 euro prize of the Jürgen Ponto Foundation. To mark this occasion, F. Wiesel are reassembling objects, images, texts and motors from previous installations and performances into a staged exhibition for one night only at Mousonturm.

A cooperation project by the Jürgen Ponto Foundation with Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and the Hessian Theatre Academy HTA.
