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.
