Kosten- und Finanzierungsplan. Eine unbekannte Größe? Mit Peter Müller

  • Venue:

  • Analog-Workshop in Einzelsitzungen

There are numerous situations in the everyday professional life of artists* in which they have to submit applications for funding programs, whereby calls for proposals often have a thematic focus that must be considered in the applications.

This workshop offers the participants the opportunity to complete an application training in several steps with Annette Hans (Artistic Director Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof) on the basis of a thematically deliberately broadly chosen fictitious open call.

The application is made with an artist statement, portfolio, project proposal and a cost plan to the call below. Afterwards - depending on the situation real or digital - constructive-critical one-on-one conversations about the content and appearance of the submitted application will be held.

Future?

The future plays a decisive role in our lives: individually and socially. We influence political elections as well as the everyday decisions of individuals. The question of the future has an impact on both large and small: At (potentially global) turning points, such as the Corona pandemic or other drastic experiences, as well as when it comes to the question of what will happen after graduation? The relationship to the future has been complicated by the corona pandemic - or rather, its complexity has come to the fore: The future has come to a standstill when everything comes to a standstill and it remains unclear when and how things will continue. The future is a temporal category of what comes after the present, but potentially also a category of utopias: How do we want it to continue?

Connected with this is the possibility of influencing it: The future happens (and may cause fear) and the future is made. Should things (social / personal) continue as they are? Or are there dreams and desires for change (even if capitalism and consumption of our neoliberal subjectivities would like to see a permanent reproduction of the status quo)?

On the basis of these lines, which are to be read as possible food for thought, interested parties are requested to apply with the following documents:

  • Artist Statement: Give an introduction to your work in max. 1000 characters
  • Portfolio with images of your artistic work: Feel free to add Vimeo or other links if you want to include videos etc.
  • Project proposal: Please sketch briefly (max. 1 DIN A4 page) an artistic project in relation to the call for proposals
  • cost plan: Outline the assumed costs for your project

Registration (for a maximum of 20 participants*) by 6.12.2020 digital (please ensure that the file size is appropriate) at swaantje.benson@hfbk.hamburg.de

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

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?
