Kunsthalle Wien Prize is a cooperation of Kunsthalle Wien with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the University of Applied Arts Vienna

For the first time, the exhibition showcasing the winners of the 2021 Kunsthalle Wien Prize will take the form of a group presentation, gathering eight artists: Anna Spanlang and Diana Barbosa Gil – winners of the first prize – as well as Cho Beom-Seok, Jojo Gronostay, and Nora Severios and Ani Gurashvili, Lukas Kaufmann, and Chin Tsao.

The curatorial team of Kunsthalle Wien decided to open the prize to a larger selection of artists in order to represent a wider spectrum of artistic positions among the graduates of both art academies. The new constellation privileges the many over the few and the collective over the individual.

The 2021 Kunsthalle Wien Prize is realized with the kind and generous support of the d+g bogner-stiftung and Dekotrend.
