The State of Lower Saxony and the HBK Braunschweig award seven Braunschweig Project scholarships in Fine Art and Sound Art


Under the tenth Braunschweig PROJECTS programme, the HBK Braunschweig has awarded scholarships to seven outstanding artists from around the world. The scholarships were made possible through a grant from the State of Lower Saxony. The award-holders have already arrived in Braunschweig to take up their scholarships in Fine Art and Sound Art, and were welcomed at their Kreuzstrasse studios, which are provided by the university as a dedicated space for the artists to live and work during their time in the city.

The five award-holders in Fine Art are Mahsa Aleph (Iran), Sasha Bergstrom-Katz (USA), Mohammad Shawky Hassan (Egypt), Ani Schulze (Germany) and Sikarnt Skoolisariyaporn (Thailand). The two scholarships in Sound Art were awarded to Caterina Gobbi (Italy) and Katharina Hauke (Germany). All seven award-holders were selected by a jury of specialists,

“The coronavirus pandemic has presented immense challenges for the international scholarship programme this year. We are happy to say that we were fully able to meet all the legal requirements, so that our award-holders could travel safely to Germany and Braunschweig and take up their scholarships as planned. We're now already looking forward to the exhibition that the award-holders will present in October at the HBK, which we believe will be very exciting,” said Professor Thomas Rentmeister, the university’s vice president for international affairs and regional networking.
