Peter und Luise Hager-Award at the Saar Academy of Fine Arts and Design (HBKsaar)

Together with Saar Academy of Fine Arts and Design (HBKsaar) the Peter und Luise Hager Foundation has been awarding prizes to outstanding students of the HBKsaar for their artistic and design projects and developments since 2011.

Each year, the call for entries specifies a theme to be addressed artistically or creatively. The prizes are intended to promote the individual development of the students in the long term. In addition, the awarding of prizes is intended to address a broad public for the aesthetic development potential of the Saar region.

The theme for the winter semester 2021/2022 is "Not Doing" (original German title „Nicht-Tun“).

A jury consisting of three representatives of the Peter und Luise Hager Foundation, three representatives of the HBKsaar and two external experts decide on the award winners. In December 2021, the jury will review and evaluate the submissions.

At the end of the winter semester 2021/2022, the ten best submissions will be shown as part of the tour in the Gallery of HBKsaar. The award ceremony will take place in the context of the opening of the tour on February 11th, 2022.

Review: Award Winners of the Peter und Luise Hager Award 2020/21

Theme: "Knowledge" (original German title: „Wissen“)

1. Prize: 1,000 euros - Polina Trishkina "Salz der Erde" (Sculpture)
2. Prize: 1,000 euros - Seokjin Hong "Drin" (Light installation)
3. Prize: 1,000 euros - Marius Buck "DaVinciPowerHammer" (Installation)

Since many students have lost their part-time jobs due to the crisis, the Foundation adjusted the usual endowment and donated part of the award money to the Corona Emergency Aid Fund of the General Students' Committee (AStA) of the HBKsaar to support students in financial need. Management Board member Susanne Trockle handed over the cheque to Prof. Gabriele Langendorf, former rector of the HBKsaar, and Joas Strecker, former AStA chairman, in July 2020 (from left to right).

In addition to the art works of the three prize winners, the entries of seven other students were exhibited: Miriam Dockendorf, Julia Gerhards, Jihoon Jung, Hwakyeong Kim, Kyungju Kim and Felicitas Zenke.
