The Volkskrant Newspaper has annonced that Guido van der Werve is the winner of the Volkskrant Beeldende Kunst Prijs (Volkskrant Award for Visual Arts). Van der Werve is renowned for his short films “which stick in one’s memory”, according to the jury report. “The films are combinations of Caspar David Friedrich paintings, the films of Chaplin and the work of Bas Jan Ader”. Van der Werve (1977) exhibited two new films in a solo show at SMBA in 2006. The Volkskrant Award consists of a financial award of 7.500 euro and an exhibition at the Centraal Museum in Utrecht.
