More than 150 invited guests from the German art and culture scene took part in the award ceremony and the subsequent party. “The fact that we have won the Montblanc de la Culture Patronage Award 2019 is a great honour for us and a very special tribute to our work, which we are very pleased about,” said Christoph Tannert, Artistic Director of Künstlerhaus Bethanien.
