19.05.2021, 19:00 – 21:00

Digital tour with Johann Brandes and Nikola Sarić.



Special prize of the Hanns-Lilje Foundation goes to Nikola Sarić.

The Hanns Lilje Foundation Prize 2021 goes to the theologian Dr. Tatjana Schnütgen from Regensburg and the Hannoverian Asambura Ensemble. Special prizes are awarded to the artist Susan Donath from Dresden and the artist Nikola Sarić from Hanover.

Prof. Dr. Christoph Dahling-Sander, Secretary of the Hanns Lilje Foundation, says: “In 2021, we will honour a scientist and artists who, with their highly innovative contributions, initiate current debates in the encounter between art and culture with church and theology. They are thus making an exemplary contribution to the productive creation of diversity of our society and the Church.”

The award ceremony is scheduled for late summer 2021.

Book mention

L’Annunciazione a Maria nell’arte d’Oriente e d’Occidente by Emanuela Fogliadini and Francois B’spflug was published by Jaca Books in October 2020.

The Annunciation to Mary is not the only Annunciation reported in the Bible, but it is undoubtedly the one that has experienced exceptional fortune in the history of Christian art, to the point of being a source of inspiration for a heritage of images of unparalleled richness. A heritage accumulated from the origins of Christian art to the present day and developed on all media and in all formats, in the East as in the West, and in all regions of the world united by the announcement of the Good News, of which the Annunciation it is, so to speak, the “gateway”. To help discover and appreciate this treasure of images, the authors have selected a representative sample of works from among those they considered most beautiful, most representative, most finely conceived and most worthy of attention and contemplation. Each of them is reproduced in full page and described in detail by a commentary text, through the use of historical sources that reconstruct their clients and recipients, their production and their function. The analysis of the works provides the interpretative elements for their reading and their full fruition, drawing them from theology, from the history of the liturgy and spirituality, as well as from the comparative history of religions, capable of offering illuminating parallels. Some of the very recent works examined have the merit of suggesting to the reader how the long history of the translation and transmission of the Gospel in images, both faithful and creatively innovative, continues over time, far from complete. The book contains a work by Nikola Sario from the Cycle of Life.

Available from bookshops (ISBN 9788816606272). Italian Edition.

Book mention

Cruxifixion – La cruxifixion dans l’art – un sujet planétaire by Francois Bœspflug with Emanuela Fogliadini is published by Bayard on 30 October 2019.

The fruit of ten years of work, Crucifixion in art, from triumph to injury, sweeps through 2000 years of iconography of the Crucifixion, in the West and in the East.

It is my honour to say that the authors also extensively wrote about my works done on this theme (pages 380-383), including the image of Crucifixion from the “Cycle of Life”.
