Every two years, the Arthur Boskamp Foundation awards two grants to artists who were born in, reside in or studied in northern Germany. The open call and subsequent grant are intended for younger artists. Applications may be submitted up to eight years after completion of university studies or, per individual arrangement, without a degree. The artist grant entails a financial award of 3000 Euros and the opportunity to realize both an exhibition at M.1 and a publication in collaboration with the Artistic Director. Furthermore, recipients may use an apartment with studio at M.1 free of charge.
The Artistic Director determines the theme and criteria of the open call for the grant and appoints a jury. The jury convenes at Hohenlockstedt to select the recipients from the pool of submisions.
