Welcoming the Fall 2019 Fellows

On the evening of September 10, 2019, the American Academy presented the fall 2019 class of fellows, welcomed by Marion Ackermann, Director General of the Dresden State Art Collections. In addition to her warm introduction, Ackermann stressed the historical connections between Dresden and Berlin via the philanthropic Arnhold family. Their private Dresden-based bank, founded by Ludwig Philippson and Max Arnhold in 1864, opened a Berlin branch in 1907, eventually led by Hans Arnhold, nephew to Max and in whose former villa the Academy is housed. The Arnhold families in both Dresden and Berlin were devout supporters the arts and culture, a tradition that continues to this day, via their families in the United States.

The fall 2019 fellows introduced themselves and their projects to the audience of invited Academy friends and supporters, the full video of which you may watch below. Fall fellows are in residence at the Academy’s Hans Arnhold Center from late August until late December, working on their independent projects and meeting with a range of German academic, artistic, and literary peers in Berlin. As part of the Berlin Prize, fellows deliver a public lecture, as part of the Academy’s public program. We look forward to welcoming you.
