The aim of the international visual arts competition The Victim of Vukovar 1991 is to establish a dialogue with contemporary art practices based on the culture of memory and symbolism of war and the suffering of the city of Vukovar. The competition seeks to generate artworks that will be inscribed in the collective memory.

The competition will select four new works of art (that have never been presented to the public) to be exhibited in Zagreb in June 2020, on the occasion of the Croatian presidency of the Council of the European Union, after which the exhibition will be held at the Vukovar Municipal Museum until the end of 2020.

The selected artists will receive an artist’s fee of HRK 60,000 (~8000 EUR) gross each. Return transport of the artworks will be provided, as well as insurance for the works of up to HRK 60,000 (~8000 EUR). If needed, the artists’ overnight and travel expenses for participation in the exhibitions, will also be covered.

The competition is open to professional artists who are EU Member States citizens, working in the field of visual arts. The competition is not open to students. Artists can apply individually, in pairs or as a part of an art collective.
