grant recipients



Since 1999, art projects of the foundations’ grant recipients are part of the biannual reports of all activities of Hessische Kulturstiftung. These short informations focus on the very term of the travel or studio grant of each artist. We have added these articles to our online data service for each artist. Concerning the biographical data provided by the artists, Hessische Kulturstiftung takes no responsibility for the timeliness and completeness of the information provided.

In addition to the presentation of our grantholders in the newsletter maecenas, some 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 on our website.


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