Internationales PuppenFestival Neustadt b. Coburg and Sonneberg 2021


All implementation options are being verified in the context of the Max-Oscar-Arnold-Award for Contemporary Doll Art. However, for this year, it has been determined that no international MOA art awarding is taking place. The Max-Oscar-Arnold-Award 2021 is discussed to be hosted either throughout Europe, or if even necessary, as a matter of fact only in Germany. The final decision will be officialised end of March.

Stay healthy! 

With kind regards

Dr. Heiko Voigt
