Faculty of Arts MA Thesis Awards 2010

16 Mar

Recently, the Faculty of Arts awarded its annual Master and Research Master Thesis Awards.

The Master award was won by Faby Bierhoff, student in the Museumconservator programme. She was awarded the prize for her thesis Hunger nach Bildern, Gier nach Leben, Appetit auf Veränderung, a study of the autonomous forms of art that existed during the Deutsche Demokratische Republik. Bierhoff shows that the domain of visual arts was not entirely in the hands of those who worked in accordance with the official guidelines for socialist realism, but that many ‘underground’ movements arose and how those autonomous forms of art survived in the dictatorial society.
