Sebastian Schröder

In June 2020 our jury awarded the second Possehl Prize for Lübeck Art to Sebastian Schröder (*1981 in Zwenkau near Leipzig). The jury justified its decision in part with the ‘multifarious’ nature of Sebastian Schröder’s work, commenting, “The artist experiments with very different techniques and the breadth of contemporary visual culture and aesthetics.” In his project proposal the artist examines allegorical medieval images of danses macabres, such as the one in St. Mary’s Church in Lübeck, and draws parallels with the covid pandemic. He is currently working on a large piece that will consist of thousands of fused plastic beads. His exhibition is planned to be on display in winter 2021/2022.
