The publication Prix de Rome 2013 presents portraits of four talented young artists nominated for the prestigious Prix de Rome Award. Christian Friedrich, Falke Pisano, Remco Torenbosch and Ola Vasiljeva were selected by an international jury because their work is surprising, enthralling and makes you hungry for more.

All four artists specialize in presentations based on theory and research. For the Prix de Rome they each created a new work. Besides an introduction by Hans den Hartog Jager, the nominated artists are portrayed by Stefan Kuiper and Roos van der Lint.

The Prix de Rome is the Netherlands’ oldest, most important prize for visual artists under 40. The award dates back to 1808 when Louis Napoleon introduced the Prix de Rome in the Netherlands to promote the arts. Although the award has regularly been renewed, the aim is still to trace talented artists and encourage them to develop and increase their visibility. Since January 2013, the award has been organised and financed by the Mondriaan Fund.

On 5 November 2013 artist Falke Pisano (NL, 1978) was presented with the Prix de Rome 2013 from Minister of Culture, Jet Bussemaker, in the presence of Queen Máxima. Pisano won the prize for her new piece Prison Work. The award includes a cash sum of 40,000 Euros and a residency in Rome. The international jury awarded the prize to Falke Pisano for her willingness to seek new challenges, despite her past success, and to embark on a new direction with great precision and conviction, building on what was. The jury wrote: “Even though distance is sought in time, with subjects from the past, the work remains compelling and up-to-date.” Pisano surprised the jury with what for her is a highly political installation in which she reflects on ‘the body in crisis’, based on a fascinating historical analysis of the consequences of privatization in the prison system.
