MASNEWS 1/2018: A Heartfelt Farewell and a Wholehearted Welcome

This edition of the newsletter is remarkable as it reports a considerable change at the HCA. Founding Director Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Detlef Junker has retired after 15 years at the head of the HCA, and I am honored to follow in his footsteps. It is my pleasure as his successor to present this first newsletter of the year. In the following pages you will find Prof. Junker’s farewell speech and a short interview with him in which he looks back on his successful tenure at the HCA.

We report about the excursion of our MAS class of 2019 to the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart and give the floor to two of our alumnae: Cen Jiang and Fei Ye tell us where their professional lives have led them after graduating from the MAS.
