On 17 November 2021, the "Riegel - KulturBewahren. Prize for the Protection, Care and Exhibition of Art and Cultural Assets" will be awarded for the fifth time. The award, which is unique in Europe, goes to the Research Group "Facility Management & Security" in the German Museums Association (Deutscher Museumsbund e.V.). (DMB). The partner of the award ceremony is EXPONATEC COLOGNE 2021.
The creation of new art is promoted in many ways. In contrast, there are hardly any awards that honour the preservation of art and cultural assets. The "Riegel - KulturBewahren" is an exception. The endowed prize honours and supports persons, associations, cultural facilities and institutions that render outstanding services to the permanent preservation and safe exhibition of cultural assets. Protecting things worth preserving is sustainable in the best sense of the word!
