Announcement of a working scholarship in Worpswede

For the challenges and possibilities are manifold and neither Hoetger's art nor our near future can be reduced to only one possible explanation. Based on these questions, an artistic impulse for the exhibition is to be developed in the scholarship, which starts from the examination of Bernhard Hoetger, but does not necessarily have to refer to him in the implementation:
