Meisterschüler*innen of the Hochschule für Künste Bremen and Karin Hollweg Prize 2021

13.11.2021 - 09.01.2022

The annual Meisterschüler*innen exhibitions provide a multifaceted insight into the quality and diversity of current art production in Bremen. A particular highlight of the exhibition is the awarding of the Karin Hollweg Prize. Endowed with a total of 15,000 Euros, it is one of the most important art promotion prizes within German art schools. Half of the prize money is reserved for an institutional solo exhibition in Bremen.

In 2021, 20 artists are involved in the exhibition, which focuses on featuring entirely new works. The entire breadth of contemporary art is represented, from painting, ceramics, and sculpture to site–specific interventions, sound works, and spatial and video installations. This year‘s exhibition will take place at the Weserburg Museum für moderne Kunst and the GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst, so that the works of the 2021 Meisterschüler*innen can be experienced in two buildings in close proximity
