The Ivan Juritz Prize is the product of a partnership between the Centre for Modern Culture at King’s College London and Mahler & LeWitt Studios in Spoleto, Italy. We offer the prize of £1,000 to winners in three categories (Text, Sound and Visual Arts), who are also invited to a joint two-week artist residency at Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All shortlisted works will be showcased at the London prize-giving at KCL and written up in the journal Textual Practice.

Centre for Modern Literature and Culture


Established in October 2013, the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture is a forum for academics, writers and artists to explore, interrogate, dismantle and reinvent the notion of the ‘modern’.  We fund and organise regular events aimed both at the academy and the wider public. The Centre is directed by Lara Feigel and Ben Schofield, aided by Jon Day, Patrick French, Jo Malt and Silvina Milstein.

The Mahler & LeWitt Studios are established around the former studios of Anna Mahler and Sol LeWitt in Spoleto, Italy. The residency program provides a focused and stimulating environment for artists of all disciplines, curators and writers to develop new ways of working in dialogue with peers and the unique cultural heritage of the region.
