Künste a Villa Massimo

October 21 – 22, 2020

“For the first presentation of the Rome Prize winners, Villa Massimo has opened new venues. The security measures against the spread of the pandemic have meant that the artists and the team of the German Academy of Rome have thought up new formats so that the public can participate in the artistic production of the architect, visual artists, composers and writers. We used the park and the common spaces; moreover, we emptied from Villa Massimo some spaces that were used in different ways and transformed them into exhibition spaces and places for performances. The events that took place in closed spaces and were accessible only to a limited number of visitors were transmitted to the outside, which allowed a wider range of people to participate. So, to sum up, the restrictions made us even more creative!”, says Julia Draganović.


Rome Prize Fellow @ Villa Massimo

The scholarship of the German Academy Rome Villa Massimo is aimed at artists who have exceptional qualifications and great talent, in the fields of visual arts, architecture, literature and music (composition). The nine Villa Massimo Rome prizewinners have already had their first public accomplishments. The stay in Rome is intended to provide them with inspiration and artistic orientation without financial constraints.

From September 2020 until June 2021
