Ottilie Roederstein Scholarship for Anna Bergold

One of two young artist scholarships in the field of visual arts is awarded to Anna Bergold. She is studying intermedia photography and time-based media in the artistic field at the Kunsthochschule Kassel under the direction of Prof. Peggy Buth.

In her project "Das Land der weißen Berge / Hidden Agenda" Anna Bergold portrays the so-called Monte Kali in the eastern Hessian town of Heringen an der Werra in the district of Hersfeld-Rotenburg, a salt dump of potash mining. To do this, she researches the topography and living environments on site and also wants to capture the general presence of industry and its impact on the landscape. With her precise and sober photographic eye, the artist raises questions about the legitimacy of human intervention in the environment, while also examining the human perception of such processes.

The young artist grants are endowed with 20,000 euros each, plus up to 20,000 euros in project funding for the implementation of the project. An overview of the Ottilie Roederstein Fellows 2023 can be found here.
