"The year 2023 was characterized by many international conflicts - so we are all the more pleased that artists from so many nations are studying and working together at the HGB. This is also reflected in the four prizewinners, who come from four continents and thus reflect not only a high level of professionalism and diversity in their art, but also in their origins," says Dr. Jens Katzek, member of the board of the HGB-Freundeskreis and chairman of the jury for this year's competition.

Members of the Study Award jury 2023/24 were: Prof. Kerstin Drechsel (Prorector HGB), Dr. Jens Katzek (Board Member HGB-Circle of Friends), Evelyn Krüger (Board Member Leipziger Bibliophilen Abend), Ilse Lafer (Director HGB Gallery), Salome Lübcke (2022/23 prizewinner), Marian Reisinger (GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts Leipzig) and Philipp Wiedemann (VNG AG Collection)

All award-winning works will be shown in parallel to the HGB Tour from February 15, 2024 in the HGB Gallery. This year, the Study Award exhibition is being realized by Aurelia Rager with the students.
