Guest of Honor program

Since the association "Künstlerhaus Ahrenshoop" took over the management of the Künstlerhaus Lukas, an honorary guest program has been initiated through an open tender, in addition to the extensive awarding of scholarships.

In this program, annually up to three outstanding artists are invited by the jury appointed by the artistic advisory board to live and work in the Künstlerhaus Lukas, a place rich in tradition. It is precisely the encounter between successful authors, visual artists and composers with young, often very experimental tendencies that brings interesting mutual stimulation and constructive discussion. As a rule, the invited artists are presented extensively at the open days or in selected exhibitions.

With regards to this guest of honor program, the cooperation with the Ahrenshoop Art Museum Foundation and the FAMA Art Foundation was of particular importance. In the field of fine arts, a well-known artist was invited to the opening of the new museum. This task is now incumbent on the jury and the sponsoring association.
