Wim Wenders receives Hans-Ehrenberg Award

The Protestant Church of the city of Bochum, jointly with the Protestant Church of Westphalia, awarded Wim Wenders with the 2017 Hans-Ehrenberg Award. The Hans-Ehrenberg Award honours individuals, who actively seek to engage in discussions on a societal level about present political, religious, and scientific issues.

In their justification of awarding the prize to Wim Wenders, the jury states that:

“By creating images, he thinks about the imageless, the holy in the mundane, the honour of the profane.”

The laudation was held by Professor Dr Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, chairman of the Council of the Protestant Church in Germany, in the presence of Hans Ehrenberg’s nephew, Heinz Ehrenberg.
