Hans and Lea Grundig-Prize
Our alumna Tanja Ostojić was honored with spezial commendation at the Hans and Lea Grundig Prize 2015.
The competition met with enormous interest and this was echoed in the more-than-260 submissions that the jury received, many of which were from abroad. Some of these submissions were particularly noteworthy and reflected the high standard of the competition. The jury would like to issue a special commendation to the following outstanding works that reached the shortlist.
In memory of Hans Grundig (1901–1958), an anti-fascist artist from Dresden who was banned from working under the Nazis, arrested numerous times, and held between 1940 and 1944 in Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. And Lea Grundig (1906–1977), repeatedly arrested by the Nazis before leaving for exile to Palestine from 1939 until 1948. The prize was first awarded by Lea Grundig at the University of Greifswald in 1972, but the award only continued until 1996. In 2011, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung took over the competition from the University of Greifswald.
The 2015 Hans and Lea Grundig Prize will be awarded on 26 November 2015 in Berlin.
