STARTS stands for Science, Technology, and Arts. The European Commission’s initiative aims to promote innovative cooperation between science, technology, and the arts and to bring it to the wider public’s attention in the form of the STARTS Prize. This year, the “STARTS PRIZE '20—Grand Prize Artistic Exploration” goes to the Canadian architect and installation artist Andrea Ling, and the "STARTS Prize '20 Grand Prize—Innovative Collaboration” is being awarded to the Russian artist Olga Kisseleva. Both artists can look forward to a STARTS trophy and 20,000 euros each. In the autumn BOZAR LAB brings together the winners and other works from the STARTS network in the exhibition STARTS Prize '20: Speculating on the Future through Art and Science.
