STARTPOINT WAS FOUNDED IN 2003 AT THE KLATOVY GALLERY / KLENOVÁ GALLERY, SINCE 2009 THE AWARD WAS ACCOMPANIED BY A STARTED RESIDENCY PROGRAMME FOR AWARDED ARTISTS. SINCE 2010 IS STARTPOINT PRIZE AN INDEPENDENT PRIZE AND FROM 2015 IT IS A REGULAR PART OF THE AUTUMN PROGRAMME OF THE TRADE FAIR PALACE OF THE NATIONAL GALLERY, BUT ALSO PRODUCES SMALLER SELECTIVE EXHIBITIONS IN OTHER CITIES (BUCHAREST, GENT, BRATISLAVA, AMSTERDAM). STARTING THIS YEAR, STARTPOINT IS BACKED BY THE FUND FOR CONTEMPORARY ART, WHICH ALSO MANAGES THE RENOWNED RICHARD ADAM COLLECTION.

THE STARTPOINT PRIZE IS UNIQUE NOT ONLY FOR ITS LONG TRADITION AND SPAN, BUT ALSO FOR ITS INDEPENDENCE, WHERE THE ACADEMIES HOLD ONLY A MINORITY CONSULTING VOTE. IT DOES NOT EVEN DETERMINE THE MEDIUM, TECHNIQUE OR THEME, THE MOST IMPORTANT CRITERION IS THE NOVELTY AND ORIGINALITY. ITS MAIN PURPOSE LIES IN FINDING A FRESH LOOK AT THE MOST RECENT EMERGING ART ACROSS EUROPE AND IN ITS PROMOTION AND POPULARIZATION.

DURING THE FIFTEEN YEARS OF STARTPOINT‘S EXISTENCE, HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS HAVE PASSED THROUGH, MANY OF WHICH ARE RESPECTED STARS TODAY, AND ALL OF THEM TOGETHER CREATE A UNIQUE GEOGRAPHICAL AND TEMPORAL CROSS-SECTION OF EUROPEAN CONTEMPORARY ART IN ITS FRESHEST FORM.
