Achievement Grant Awards for Foreign Students

Every year, achievement grants („Leistungsstipendien“) are made available to non-German students by the Hamburg Ministry of Science, Research, and Equal Rights, and by the DAAD co-financed by Karl H. Ditze Stiftung (»matching funds«). They consist of a grant of 450 euros monthly, lasting for up to one year.

Application


All non-German Bachelor students having completed the 4th semester and all Master students are eligible to apply for the DAAD Award 2021.


The first step is to apply online using an application form. After you have filled out the application form, you will receive a confirmation email with the request to upload the following documents as one PDF into a cloud:

  • a short resume,
  • a letter of recommendation from an HFBK professor.


Please note that each HFBK professor can only propose one student for the Achievement Grant Awards. Application deadline is January 15, 2021.


In the second part of the application procedure you will present a selection of your work to a commission. The commission tour takes place on January 21, 2021 in the HFBK (main building Lerchenfeld). Please organize a room on your own and prepare the selection of your work appealingly.


The DAAD Prize will probably be awarded during the opening of the 2021 Annual Exhibition.

School of No Consequences

Everyone is talking about consequences: The consequences of climate change, the Corona pandemic or digitalization. Friedrich von Borries (professor of design theory), on the other hand, is dedicated to consequence-free design. In “School of No Consequences. Exercises for a New Life” at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, he links collection objects with a "self-learning room" set up especially for the exhibition in such a way that a new perspective on "sustainability" emerges and supposedly universally valid ideas of a "proper life" are questioned.

Annual Exhibition 2021 at the HFBK

Annual exhibition a bit different: From February 12- 14, 2021 students at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts, together with their professors, had developed a variety of presentations on different communication channels. The formats ranged from streamed live performances to video programs, radio broadcasts, a telephone hotline, online conferences, and a web store for editions. In addition, isolated interventions could be discovered in the outdoor space of the HFBK and in the city.

Public Information Day 2021

How do I become an art student? How does the application process work? Can I also study to become a teacher at the HFBK? These and other questions about studying art were answered by professors, students and staff at the HFBK during the Public Information Day on February 13, 2021. In addition, there will be an appointment specifically for English-speaking prospective students on February 23 at 2 pm.

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?
