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. The prize is a collaboration between the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture at King’s College London and Cove Park: winners receive £1000 and a residency at Cove Park.

Kathryn Maris is one of three artists to be awarded a residency as part of the Ivan Juritz Prize this year. Kathryn is an American-British poet and critic who has published three poetry collections, most recently The House With Only An Attic And A Basement (Penguin 2018).
