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

Joint-working with the Saar Academy of Fine Arts and Design (HBKsaar) in Saarbrücken entered its ninth year in 2019/2020. This year's theme is "faith" (German: Glaube).

Impressed by the creativity displayed by students and the co-operation displayed by their professors, we have the pleasure of supporting several students every year in their chosen fields of creativity. It is obvious that the prizes awarded are improving the artistic development of students over the long term. Yet not only the winners benefit from this commitment by the Foundation, all participants, including faculty staff, rise to meet a creative challenge each year which also contributes towards the reputation enjoyed by Saarbrücken as a university location.

The decision on the award of the Peter and Luise Hager Prize is made by a jury consisting of three representatives of the Peter und Luise Hager Foundation, three representatives of the HBKsaar and two external experts. The judging will take place in two phases. In December 2018, the jury will review and evaluate the entries. At the end of the 2019/2020 winter semester, the ten best works will be shown as part of the tour of the "Moderne Galerie". The award ceremony will take place on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition on 31st January 2020.
