Vize 97 gives annual prize to art historian Mojžišová

The Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation VIZE 97 has awarded its annual prize to art theorist and philosopher Iva Mojžišová. She is the second woman and the first Slovak to receive the award. Each year the foundation recognises a ‘significant thinker’ whose work in the sciences asked fundamental questions about human existence and done so in an unconventional way. Previous winners have included sociologist Zygmunt Bauman, prison study psychologist Philip Zimbardo and writer Umberto Eco.
