Peter und Luise Hager-Prize

The Foundation and the Saar Academy of Fine Arts and Design award prizes to outstanding students

Together with the Saar Academy of Fine Arts (HBKsaar) we honour students with the Peter und Luise Hager-Prize for their outstanding artworks every year. This year we will enter the tenth year. The theme of the Peter und Luise Hager-Prize 2020/21 is "Knowledge" (German: Wissen). 

Since many students have lost their part-time jobs due to the crisis, we are adjusting the usual endowment this year and donating part of the prize money to the Corona Emergency Aid Fund of the General Students' Committee (AStA) of the HBKsaar instead.

Management Board member Susanne Trockle handed over the cheque to Prof. Gabriele Langendorf, rector of the HBKsaar, and Joas Strecker, AStA chairman, yesterday (from left to right).
