Meisterschülerpreis der G2 Kunsthalle 2018

Im Rahmen der Eröffnung der Meisterschüler-Ausstellung der Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig (HGB) vergibt die G2 Kunsthalle am 11. Oktober 2018 zum zweiten Mal den Meisterschülerpreis der G2 Kunsthalle.

Der mit 10.000 Euro dotierte Preis wird in Kooperation mit der HGB Leipzig ausgeschrieben und ist von der G2 Kunsthalle gestiftet. Neben einem Preisgeld von 10.000 Euro erhält der Preisträger ein kostenfreies Atelier für den Zeitraum von 12 Monaten. Ausgelobt wird der Preis einmal jährlich unter allen Meisterschülerklassen der HGB. Zur Teilnahme berechtigt sind alle Absolventinnen und Absolventen, die das Meisterschülerstudium im März oder September des laufenden Jahres erfolgreich abgeschlossen haben. Der Bewerbungsschluss ist Freitag 5. Oktober 2018.

2017 wurde der Meisterschülerpreis des G2 Kunsthalle an Robert Sieg für seinen filmischen Essay »Der unsichtbare Teich« verliehen. Mit der Stiftung des medien- und klassenübergreifenden Meisterschülerpreises möchte die G2 Kunsthalle – über die eigene Ausstellungstätigkeit hinausgehend –  junge Künstlerinnen und Künstler, die am Beginn ihrer Laufbahn stehen, fördern. Ziel ist die Unterstützung der Entwicklung zeitgenössischer Kunstproduktion vor Ort.

MdbK meets G2

Die Ausstellung MdbK meets G2 vereint Werke aus den Beständen des Museums der bildenden Künste Leipzig und der Sammlung Hildebrand. Alle gezeigten Gemälde sind nach 2000 entstanden und von Künstlerinnen und Künstlern, die an der Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig studiert haben.

Jeweils ein Werk aus dem Museum und der Sammlung Hildebrand von Henriette Grahnert, Rosa Loy, Jochen Plogsties, Neo Rauch und Johannes Rochhausen ergänzen sich zu einem Bildpaar. Das MdbK bringt weiterhin Gemälde von Tilo Baumgärtel, Franziska Holstein, Christoph Ruckhäberle und Matthias Weischer ein, während aus der Sammlung Hildebrand unter anderem Werke von Katrin Heichel, Uwe Kowski, Julia Schmidt und David Schnell zu sehen sind.

Die Ausstellung möchte mit dieser Werkauswahl das reiche malerische Spektrum Leipziger Künstler und Künstlerinnen spiegeln und damit einhergehend den international bekannten, aber einseitig verwendeten Etikettenbegriff der „Neuen Leipziger Schule“ kritisch hinterfragen.

Smart Art Zone

Die G2 Kunsthalle bietet kostenfreie Spezialprogramme für Schulklassen an. Kunst und Museum als individueller und progressiver Erfahrungs- und Denkraum ist dabei das zentrale Thema.

In Zusammenarbeit mit den Fachlehrerinnen und Fachlehrern werden spezifisch auf die jeweiligen Schülerinnen und Schüler abgestimmte Kunstvermittlungsprogramme zur Auseinandersetzung mit zeitgenössischer Kunst erarbeitet. Mit uns gibt es keine vorgefertigten Führungen. Wir versuchen dabei möglichst immer Termine zu finden, an denen die Schülerinnen und Schüler die Kunsthalle für sich allein haben und sich so ganz auf die ausgestellten Werke konzentrieren können. Das ist für alle Beteiligten eine ganz besondere Erfahrung, die dezidiert nachhaltig auf die Schülerinnen und Schüler wirken soll.

Ihr habt Lust mit eurer Klasse daran teilzunehmen und Kunst mal anders zu sehen, dann sprecht mit eurer Kunstlehrerin bzw. eurem Kunstlehrer oder meldet euch bei uns via Email oder telefonisch unter 0341 35 57 37 93 .

in conversation with Anka Ziefer, Director G2 Kunsthalle
Tuesday 27 June 2017, 6.30pm, free admission
G2 Kunsthalle, Dittrichring 13, 04109 Leipzig

The artist talk will be held in German language and is organized by G2 Kunsthalle Leipzig on occasion of the current group show COLORS OF DESCENTS with art works by Tobias Hild, Julius Hofmann and Robert Seidel. The exhibition presents three positions in painting, that share influences from the visual structures of early 1990s computer-game graphics. The artists Tobias Hild, Julius Hofmann and Robert Seidel are graduates of the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig and their work is presented together for the first time at G2 Kunsthalle. Using different strategies of appropriation they draw on a repertoire of video-game scenarios, a field whose relevance to the development of visual art has yet only been marginally acknowledged.

No registration required, free admission, limited seats available.
