The working world of artists has changed significantly in recent years. In response to this, the HFBK Hamburg aims to equip its graduates with knowledge and skills that will facilitate their confident professional positioning in the art field. The program is aimed in particular at freelance artists and provides for the imparting of knowledge related to the professional field, which is necessary for the complex requirements of an independent artistic activity. The goal is to be able to act in an informed and self-confident manner in the field of art and thus to make the transition from study to work smoother.
The free program includes information events, lectures and workshops on the topics of positioning, presentation, financing, networking, management, law and contracts, marketing, social security and taxes. The program is aimed at students in their final year as well as graduates (students in the master's program, doctoral students and alumni) of the HFBK up to 5 years after graduation.
We will also be happy to advise you on individual questions within these subject areas; review your portfolio together and answer questions about your application documents. In individual cases, experts from art-related fields can be consulted to answer specific questions.
