HFBK Online Gallery
The HFBK Online Gallery creates a digital exhibition space in addition to the existing exhibition opportunities at the HFBK Hamburg. Teachers and students, but also external curators, can use the HFBK Online Gallery for their own exhibition projects. The goal is (inter)national networking and exchange between artists, curators and the public, as well as the creation of another instance with which students can present themselves beyond the borders of Hamburg. The website www.online-gallery.hfbk.net/ was developed specifically for mobile devices and enables intuitive movement through the digital exhibition space.
At the same time, the online exhibition offered students the opportunity during Corona Crisis to present their work virtually.
Twelve HFBK students were nominated for the 2020 Hiscox Art Prize in February 2020. Among them: Manuel Funk, Moritz Haas, Paula Hoffmann, Stephanie Jacobs, Helene Kummer, Amy Maga, Esteban Pérez, Marie Pietsch, Katja Pilipenko, Jakob Sitter, Chenxi Zhong, Laura Ziegler + hhintersection.
Complementing the joint exhibition in the gallery spaces of the HFBK, the works will be transferred to the virtual space of the HFBK Online Gallery for a long-term presentation.
Transparencies 1 und 2:
The two-part exhibition addressed intransparent socio-political processes or the questionable desire for the "transparent human being".
Verena Issel (guest professor for art education at the HFBK Hamburg), together with Fabian Hesse (artistic collaborator in the workshop Digitales/Material) and numerous HFBK students, conceived an exhibition on the topic of transparency. In this context, the concept of transparency is multilayered in terms of form and content. Especially opaque or reflective surfaces are difficult to capture via 3D scans. Errors, so-called glitches, often arise that cause both the original object and the technology to dissolve and transform, creating new hybrids.
At the same time, the online exhibition at Corona Crisis provided an opportunity for students to showcase their work virtually.

The Onlien Gallery kicked off with the exhibition of the nominees for the Hiscox Art Prize 2019, for which selected works were captured or digitally modeled in a complex 3D scanning process. They can thus be experienced three-dimensionally in the digital exhibition space. The online exhibition does not function as an exact replica of the exhibition at the HFBK, but as an independent presentation.
Die Online Gallery is a project of the HFBK Hamburg, Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU) und Hamburg Open Science (HOS).
