30. Photo work scholarship 2019
The jury, consisting of Peter Bialobrzeski (chair), Barbara Esch Marowski, Melina Papageorgiou, Hengameh Hosseini Sereshki and Marc Volk has awarded the scholarship of 3,000 euros to Jana Sophia Nolle for her project proposal "Living Room".
For the projected performative-photographic work, Jana Sophia Nolle intends to set up and photograph makeshift shelters for homeless people in the district in the living rooms of affluent urbanites. Her previous installations in San Francisco living rooms are compelling for both their sculptural quality and photographic translation. The grant will allow this dedicated young artist to congenially expand her work and introduce recipients to a contemporary issue in a new, previously unseen way.
