    Information

    Each year, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg’s Cultural Office awards ten working scholarships to visual artists, with the lucky few each receiving a bursary of 820 euros a month. The scholarship can only be awarded to professional artists from the broad field of the visual arts who are domiciled in Hamburg and excludes students. The scholarship program is absolutely unique in Germany and has been in existence since 1981. A large number of nationally and internationally renowned artists are among the former scholarship holders, including Stephan Balkenhol, Mariella Mosler, Bernhard Prinz, Christoph Schäfer and Jeanne Faust.

    In 2012, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg’s Cultural Office again chose ten visual artists as recipients of the working scholarships.

    The winners this year are:

    Adrian Alecu
    Carl Groß
    Simon Hempel
    Burk Koller
    Axel Loytved
    Stefan Marx
    Regine Petersen
    Grit Richter
    Paul Sochacki
    Lily Lea Wittenburg

    For the first time, the ten were selected via a two-stage jurying process involving two specialist juries. In a first step, a seven-member specialist jury sifted through the total of 176 applications filed and compiled a short list of 23 applicants, one work from each of them then being exhibited at Kunsthaus. A five-member jury then chose ten artists from among the 23 as the winners of the working scholarships.

    At the end of every scholarship year a selection of new works by the current scholarship holders goes on public display. And on the occasion of the exhibition a catalog is published with contributions by all ten stipend holders (in an edition of 300, this year with texts by Britta Peters).
