The OHO Award 2012

The OHO Award was established in 2005 by the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute in collaboration with the Foundation for a Civil Society and with the support of the New York based Trust for Mutual Understanding. The aim of the OHO Award is to support young visual artists and to take them from a marginal social position to a more central role in society, with an emphasis on a positive context based on openness and creativity.
The OHO Award is a major international fellowship award program for young visual artists till 35 year, including media of painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography, video, new media and performance.

The jury for the 2012 OHO Award: Katerina Mirović (curator, Ljubljana), Jože Barši (ALUO, Ljubljana), Dalibor Martinis (artist, Zagreb), and Miran Mohar (artist, Ljubljana).
