ASH Berlin regularly presents two awards:
The Alice Salomon Award is presented to individuals who have made notable contributions supporting the work of the founder of our university.
The Alice Salomon Poetics Prize honours artists who have contributed to the further development of the literary, visual or acoustic arts through special stylistic idioms and diversity while working in an interdisciplinary manner and having an interdisciplinary effect.
The two awards are presented every year at the university’s annual reception at the start of the year.
The Alice Salomon Award is presented by the university in recognition of individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the emancipation of women and the development of social work, thereby continuing and strengthening the work Alice Salomon in today’s world.
The award is also intended to increase public awareness of the life’s work of Alice Salomon, honouring its continuing importance and currency.
