Visit to The Universität der Künste Berlin, UdK (Berlin University of the Arts)

After a two hour wander through the city, past the Brandenburg gate and through the Tiergarten, I was greeted at UdK by Angelika Theuss and Sheila Zips from the International Relations Office. After lunch with the busary holders I was taken on a tour of the Fine Art building by Jürgen Verhoeven and Kilian Seyfried, two Coordinators for international students at UdK. I must thank UdK for ther generosity shown to me during the visit. This is an extremely busy time for institutions and to afford me time over lunch followed by a two hour tour was more than i could of hoped for. 

A fantastic institution within an exciting city and it was a pleasure to visit.

Although not at all doing the spaces justice, the images below are of some of the studios and workshop facilities. 

An example of one of the group studio spaces, this one is home to Lewis Miller.

Weight used to keep freshly bound books compact.

An example of the heigh and light that are available throughout the building. Strangely reminiscent of the basement studios in the Macintosh
