The Ivan Juritz Prize was established in 2014 to celebrate the creative explosion of the modernist era and reward art that seeks to ‘make it new’. Postgraduate students throughout Europe either from traditional academic disciplines or from creative courses are invited to submit texts, films, musical compositions, virtual documentation of artwork, excerpts of moving image work and proposals for installation and performance. Entrants are encouraged to play with form to make us think, feel and question. The prize is the product of a partnership between the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture at King’s College London and Cove Park, Scotland’s International Artist Residency Centre. Winners in three categories (Text, Sound and Visual Arts) will receive £1000 each. We will also seek their involvement in future artistic collaborations with Cove Park. All shortlisted works will be showcased at the digital prize-giving and written up in the journal Textual Practice.
The 2021 prize is judged by Will Eaves, Josephine Pryde, Richard Scott and Arlene Sierra.
