Student scholarship holders of the ZKM exhibit: Video / Photography / Sound / Sculpture / Generated Art / Installation
Sat, July 27, 2019 – Sun, September 08, 2019

From July 27 to September 8, the ZKM will be presenting the group exhibition of the [MASTERCLASS]. The [MASTERCLASS] is a special kind of talent pool. Over the course of several months, seven young scholarship students develop their own artwork with the support of ZKM mentors. 

The [MASTERCLASS] enables young people, aged between 15 and 19 with a great interest in art and special artistic talent, to find out about current art trends and the ZKM program. In dialog with like-minded people and professional artists, the up-and-coming talent learns how to handle new media and develop their own work over the course of a school year. Experienced artists and curators are by their side as mentors who support and advise them with their expertise.

The scholarship was advertized to talented students at Karlsruhe schools which have a main focus on media. For this year’s [MASTERCLASS], a jury of ZKM employees and members of the sponsorship association chose seven scholarship students: Sophia Maria Ford, Daniel Kassapov, Johanna Merkelbach, Gerald Schmit, Tim Schnepp-Pesch, Robert Voda-Ludwig und Maximillian Zschiesche. The students had applied with their own artistic work and a covering letter.
