The publicly offered scholarship for a three-month working stay in the Cité International des Arts in Paris has been decided in a two-stage jury process:
Artist Armando Duçellari will travel there in the summer of 2022.
Armando Duçellari was born in 1990 in Durres, Albania, studied at the HfK in Bremen, graduated in 2019 from the Liberal Arts program and was a master student of Prof. Heike Kati Barath in 2021. His proposal prevailed in the process with a project on urban surveying and development for Paris.
For the third time in a row, the BBK Bremen organizes and finances this three-month stay in the well-known studio and residential complex in Paris. The scholarship includes the cost of travel to and from the studio, the rent for the studio and a subsidy of € 1000 per month for living expenses.
11 professional artists from Bremen and the surrounding area applied with a concept for a work project in Paris. The Bremen pre-selection from three positions made in the jury meeting in December Annette Hans (GAK), Amina Brotz (artist, scholarship holder from 2021) and Christian Haake (artist).

Competition exhibition from February 27 to April 17, 2022 – Invitation to press preview.
The Bremen Förderpreis für Bildende Kunst has been awarded annually by the Senator for Culture since 1977. In its history, it has honoured numerous artists for the first time, who have later become nationally known, such as the Bremen painter Norbert Schwontkowski. The prize is awarded in a two-stage procedure for special achievements and is endowed with 6,000 euros. It is thus one of the oldest and most highly endowed prizes for the promotion of young artists, and is also associated with a solo exhibition and a publication.
