Scholarship programme

Since 1999, art projects of the foundations’ scholarship recipients have been part of the biannual reports of all activities of the Cultural Foundation of Hesse (Hessische Kulturstiftung). This short information focuses on the very term of the travel or studio scholarship of each artist. We have added these articles to our online data service for each artist. Concerning the biographical data about the artists, Hessische Kulturstiftung takes no responsibility for the timeliness and completeness of the information provided by them.

In addition to the presentation of our scholarship holders in the newsletter “maecenas”, several new interviews with selected artists are published online for the first time. You will find all former and current interviews within “maecenas” in the section “magazine maecenas” on our website.

To our foreign readers: We regret that all artistic information is only available in German language.
