The Anni and Heinrich Sussmann Foundation was founded in 1989 following the will of Heinrich Sussmann to support artists who are committed to the ideal of democracy and antifascism. The foundation has awarded over the years awards to dozens of Austrian artists, since 2015 it is becoming an international award.

We, Friedemann Derschmidt, Ronen Eidelman, and Daniela Zobel have became this year in charge of the Foundation and took upon ourselves a relaunch process for the Foundation and to make the artist award relevant, significant and effective.
