In honor of the thinker, curator, author and teacher, the Cathrin Pichler Prize will be awarded to a student of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna who - in the spirit of Cathrin Pichler - is concerned with thinking specifically about artistic methods and practices as a contribution and intervention to a scientific discourse.


In addition to a prize money of 2,500 euros, the awarded work will be exhibited. For the realization of the exhibition, the Academy provides production costs of up to 750 Euro.


Students of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna as well as graduates who completed their studies at the Academy in the summer semester 2015* or later are eligible to submit applications. The prize is dedicated to artistic-scientific research projects. (Qualification projects such as diploma, master or doctoral theses are excluded!)


* Exception due to social reasons: If you have completed your studies a longer time ago, you can still submit proof of e.g. childcare periods, illness or care of relatives, etc.
