Kunstraum Leuphana   

The Internationaler Literaturpreis is awarded by the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the foundation “Elementarteilchen” (Hamburg):

The Stiftung Elementarteilchen, Hamburg, was founded by Jan Szlovak (Chairman) in 2007. The foundation supports nonprofit organizations and projects in the Hamburg area and beyond that work for climate and environmental protection, ending female genital mutilation, the clearance of landmines, and other causes. In 2009, the Stiftung Elementarteilchen joined with Haus der Kulturen der Welt to institute the Internationaler Literaturpreis. Borne by a common interest in the promotion of international literatures and their translation, the award has since been conferred annually with substantial financial support from the foundation.
