Antragstellung – von der Idee zum antragsfähigen Konzept mit Peter Müller

  • Venue:

  • Online-Vortrag via BigBlueButton

The writing of grant applications will be discussed and practiced in this workshop: How to present your request in a comprehensible way, stay within the framework of the call for proposals and keep your individual way of expressing yourself; how to deal with the indeterminable?


In the main part of the workshop, the participants present their own grant applications, which the group responds to with constructive criticism. The revised versions will be discussed again and the group will reflect on how the respective revision went.

The goal of the two-day workshop is to show integral strategies for the presentation of artistic projects.



Prerequisite for participation is a (possibly fictitious, related to a specific call for proposals) elaborated draft of a grant application, including a portfolio, which must be brought along as a PDF file at the beginning of the course.


Registration (for max. 10 participants*) at swaantje.benson@hfbk.hamburg.de

Workshop places will be allocated according to the order of registrations.

This workshop is aimed at students in their final year and graduates up to 5 years after graduation

HFBK Graduate Survey

Studying art - and what comes next? The clichéd images stand their ground: Those who have studied art either become taxi drivers, work in a bar or marry rich. But only very few people could really live from art – especially in times of global crises. The HFBK Hamburg wanted to know more about this and commissioned the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Hamburg to conduct a broad-based survey of its graduates from the last 15 years.

How political is Social Design?

Social Design, as its own claim is often formulated, wants to address social grievances and ideally change them. Therefore, it sees itself as critical of society – and at the same time optimizes the existing. So what is the political dimension of Social Design – is it a motor for change or does it contribute to stabilizing and normalizing existing injustices?
