dpa/GNA – Three women have been awarded 1,600-euro (1,900-dollar) scholarships for “doing nothing,” according to the University of Fine Arts Hamburg (HFBK).

Hilistina Banze, Mia Hofner and Kimberley Vehoff were selected by a jury, which considered applications from 2,864 applicants from 70 countries.

Banze’s application said that she would take off her headscarf for a week to reveal her buzz cut in an effort to counter stereotypes about women.

Hofner, a student from Cologne, said she would not generate any usable personal data about herself online for a period of two weeks.

Vehoff, a food technology specialist, said she would stop working because her social relationships were suffering as a result of the timing of her shifts.

The award is part of “School of No Consequences: Exercises for a New Life,” an artistic and discursive project by Friedrich von Borries at the Museum for Art and Trade (MKG) in Hamburg.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
