Andrėja Šaltytė and Larissa Rosa Lackner receive Karl Schmidt-Rottluff scholarship

The six winners of the postgraduate Karl Schmidt-Rottluff Scholarship 2022 include HGB graduates Larissa Rosa Lackner and Andrėja Šaltytė. In June, the jury selected 14 finalists from around 70 proposals, who were invited to present their work at the main selection in September. Following the jury meeting, the works were shown as OPEN HOUSE, an open presentation, at the Brücke Museum Berlin. The exhibition can be seen until October 3.

Andrėja Šaltytė graduated in 2021 as a Meisterschülerin by Clemens von Wedemeyer. Prior to that, she already completed her diploma at the HGB in the field of media art in Helmut Mark's fine arts class and studied painting in Vilnius and Grenoble.

Larissa Rosa Lackner graduated as a Meisterschülerin in Tina Bara's class for photography and moving image in 2019. The multimedia artist, who lives in Berlin and the Uckermarck region, works as a photographer, director and curator.

In addition to a monthly scholaship of 1,200 euros, the sponsorship includes a group exhibition at the Düsseldorf Kunsthalle in the fall of 2023 and an associated catalog production. In addition, the recipients can participate in the educational program of the German National Academic Foundation, such as art conferences, excursions, or summer academies. Since 2016, the award winners have also created limited editions, the proceeds of which flow back into the scholarship and thus support future recipients. The other recipients of the 2022 fellowship are Matej Bosnić, Cudelice Brazelton IV, Nicolas Fehr, and Daniel Hopp.
