In the context of a gala evening on November 6, 2015, the governor Dr. Erwin Pröll presented the Cultural Awards of Lower Austria 2015. Among the numerous guests of honor from art, culture, science and politics, this year’s awardees Dr. Robert Menasse, Univ.-Prof.in Mag.a Brigitte Kowanz, Mimi Wunderer-Gosch and Mag. Franz Thürauer were also present.

For 55 years now, Lower Austria has been assigning cultural awards in different sections. An independent expert jury selects the respective awardees. In 2015, they presented each a honory prize and a recognition prize in eight sections – visual arts, literature, dramatic arts, art film, music, popular culture and cultural initiatives, adult education as well as cultural and scientific journalism.

The exhibition of the awardees for visual arts – among them Brigitte Kowanz – and media arts will open on Friday, November 20, 2015 at Stadtmuseum St. Pölten.
