Each year, KIM presents an exhibition offering the respective award-winners of the Daniel Frese Prize for Contemporary Art the opportunity to present their artworks in a group exhibition alongside positions of acclaimed (inter)national artists. The show is dedicated to the respective focus of the Daniel Frese Prize, which is offered according to annually changing themes.

For the exhibitions, renowned art institutions from the region could be won over as cooperation partners to make available their spaces, reputation and resources: Schloss Agathenburg near Stade, Kunstverein Springhornhof in Neuenkirchen near Soltau, Kunstraum of the Leuphana University Lüneburg, and Halle fuer Kunst Lüneburg.

In 2012, Kunstverein Springhornhof in Neuenkirchen was the host of the exhibition. The works of the Daniel Frese Prize winners Fabian Reimann and Niko Wolf, basing on their honoured drafts relating to questions of »art and (non-)sustainability«, joined the show »The Simple Life« in which, moreover, artistic positionings of Angela Bulloch, Josephine Meckseper, Shana Moulton and Simon Starling were presented.

In the previous year, Kunstraum of the Leuphana University of Lüneburg acted as host. The show »Demanding Supplies - Nachfragende Angebote« negotiating the topic of »art market« presented installations and practices of the award-winners of the first Daniel Frese Prize, Diego Castro (Stade) and Katja Staats (Harburg), along with works amongst others by Daniel Buren (Paris) and Maria Eichhorn (Berlin).

The Innovation Incubator Lüneburg is an EU major project, financed by the European Regional Development Fund and co-funded by the federal state of Lower Saxony.
