H13 Lower Austria Prize For Performance

Performance is a form of expression. As a multifaceted form with differences in staging and content, it has a long tradition in Austrian art and has undergone a progressive revision in art history in recent years. With the H13 Lower Austria Prize for Performance, an emphasis is put on the performative works of the younger generation.
