CALL: Birgit Jürgenssen Prize 2012

Her oeuvre goes far beyond the boundaries of a single medium, comprises such different forms of expression as drawing, performance, photography, video, and objects.
The Birgit Jürgenssen Prize amounting to a sum of 3,000 Euros will be awarded in remembrance for the artist annually to a student of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna for her/his achievements in the media sphere, taking works of artistic photography, video and (digital) media art into special consideration.
