In an unexpected turn of events, two days after our studio visit with architect Arno Brandlhuber, we had the occasion to visit one of his much lauded built projects: the so-called ‘Anti-Villa’ on the shores of Krampnitzsee in Potsdam…[read on…]

Article by Alison Hugill, Studio Visit photos by Alexander Coggin – in Berlin; Tuesday, Jun. 16, 2015.

Anne Duk Hee Jordan‘s studio is a cross between a metal workshop and a wunderkammer, neatly divided down the middle. Against the far window sill she has carefully placed a cabinet of rare curios…[read on…]


AA Bronson

Article by Linus Ignatius; Studio Visit photos by Ériver Hijano – in Berlin; Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015.

AA Bronson is a little like the art world’s Father Time. With a long white beard to underscore his twinkling eyes and a body of work that continually invokes the presence of the dead, he is part veteran artist and part modern-day shaman…[read on…]


Berlin Art Link Studio Visit with Daniel Gustav Cramer

Article by Henry Andersen, Studio Visit photos by Conor Clarke – in Berlin; Thursday, Nov. 06, 2014.

Arriving at the Friedrichshain studio of Daniel Gustav Cramer, I did not bring any zoom recorder or other microphone – only a pencil and small writing pad. Cramer and I had spoken via email about not wanting the visit to feel too much like a formal interview. I had too some vague notion that given his work…[read on…]

Article by Alena Sokhan, Studio Visit photos by Conor Clarke – in Berlin; Wednesday, Sep. 17, 2014.

With their name reminiscent of a merchant firm from the beginning of the industrial age, Awst&Walther refers to the very much contemporary husband and wife team Manon Awst and Benjamin Walther, who produce ideas, events and environments…[read on…]


Berlin Art Link, Marianne Vitale, Too Much Satan For One Hand

Article by Lucia Love, Studio Visit photos by Nicole Motta – in New York City; Thursday, August 14, 2014.

Artist studios in the city are as diverse as the neighborhoods that they crop up in. Always shifting through industrial blocks – anonymous areas where you might have trouble finding a Chase bank – artists suss out the inhabitable frontier of real-estate…[read on…]



Article by Alison Hugill, Studio Visit photos by Claudia D’Alò – in Berlin; Wednesday, July 9, 2014.

Eyal Burstein points nonchalantly to the four corners of his Kreuzberg hinterhof studio space and labels them for me: “these are my prototypes, this is where I photograph the works, this is the tax section, and this is where I chill out”…[read on…]


Berlin Art Link Studio Visit with Gregor Hildebrandt

Article by Alison Hugill, Studio Visit photos by Tim Adler and Susann Zielinski – in Berlin; Monday, Jun. 16, 2014.

Fittingly, Gregor Hildebrandt arrived a bit late to our studio visit meet-up in Wedding because he was DJing the opening of the Berlin Biennale the night before. The tardiness was quickly forgiven when we met, as the artist is a gregarious sort. What’s more, his work cultivates this very capricious Berlin attitude…[read on…]


Przemek Pyszczek

Article by AJ Kiyoizumi, Studio Visit photos by Claudia D’Alò – in Berlin; Tuesday, Jun. 03, 2014.

In his recent channels of work, Przemek Pyszczek has painted with concrete and ripped apart playgrounds. As hardcore as this sounds, his bright studio in Schöneweide features friendly knots of primary-colored pipes resting in one corner, and opposite, a canvas with waves of sherbet hues leans against the wall…[read on…]


Berlin Art Link_Nir Hod_Genius Otto

Article by Lucia Love, Studio Visit photos by Nicole Motta – in Berlin; Tuesday, Apr. 14, 2014.

On Nir Hod’s block you can still get a feeling for some aspects of old Manhattan, and the inside of his studio is no different. Barely visible in the woodgrain on the floor when you walk up the narrow flight of stairs to the main space are printed ideals like “Love” and “Forever”…[read on…]


Berlin Art Link, Rachel Mason, Bjork

Article by Lucia Love, Studio Visit photos by Nicole Motta – in Berlin; Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014.

After wandering the labyrinthine corridors of the Atelierhaus Mengerzeile in Berlin’s Treptow district for quite some time, I finally find my way to the spacious studio of Enda O’Donoghue (born 1973 in Limerick, Ireland) where a wonderful reception awaits me…[read on…]


Berlin Art Link, Kadar Brock, Demiusfim

Article by Lucia Love, Studio Visit photos by Jen Trahan – in Berlin; Friday, Jan. 17, 2014.

Within Brock’s studio the trappings of an intensive painting process are immediately evident. Plaster, enamel, spray paint on a wheeled cart, sanders, industrial primers and pens of every sort are grouped amongst buckets of scrapped paintings and collected dust…[read on…]


Stefan Kaminkski, Berlin Art Link Studio Visit

Article by Melissa Steckbauer, Studio Visit photos by Stephanie Third – in Berlin; Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013.

Seated in his studio in Mitte, the shy but generous Kaminski speaks to me about his work. While I listen I survey. The room is a smattering of emotional fixtures and patterned surfaces: the black and white dog on the sofa, the ailing wickerwork table, and the monstrous artworks which lean piled against the wall and just graze the ceiling…[read on…]

Article by Sarah Gretsch, Studio Visit photos by Conor Clark – in Berlin; Monday, Oct. 07, 2013.

A ten-minute walk from S-Bahn station Pankow-Heinersdorf, behind rows of quaint German houses with front gardens, I find the studio of Katharina Fengler in a place that feels nothing like Berlin…[read on…]


Michael-Sailstorfer, Antiherbst

Article by Alison Hugill, Studio Visit photos by Conor Clark – in Berlin; Tuesday, Aug. 07, 2013.

Rumour has it that Michael Sailstorfer’s studio building in Weissensee, on the tranquil outskirts of Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg district, was once the production studio of early German film pioneer Joe May[read on…]



Article and Studio Visit photos by Katy Diamond Hamer – in Berlin; Monday, Apr. 08, 2013.

Historically, painting has a very long lineage ranging from early cave drawings to Abstract Expressionism and Magic Realism. In the process of having a relevant, provocative and cerebral dialogue with painting, one must consider what has been done before…[read on…]



Article by Devon Caranicas, Studio Visit photos by Devon Caranicas – in Berlin; Monday, Mar. 04, 2013.

Located in the centre of Mitte, up several flights of stairs and overlooking Rosenthaler Staße, we met with Irish artist Aoife Collins to uncover the temporary premise for where she is currently working on three bodies of work. Neatly compartmentalized into separate areas, Collins’ works are set in an environment…[read on…]


Konstantino Dregos

Article by Natasha Klimenko, Studio Visit photos by Conor Clarke – in Berlin; Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013.

Tucked away on an unsuspecting street in Wedding sit the front windows of what appears to be a shop in disuse. Behind their half closed blinds lies a small working space…[read on…]

Born as Merrill Beth Nisker in Toronto, Peaches has been based in Berlin for over ten years. Where Peaches may be best known for her ravenously raunchy, gender-reevaluating, and explosive electro-clash tracks such as…[read on…]


Marisa Mandler

Article by Adela Yawitz; Studio Visit Photos by Rian Davidson – in Berlin; Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012.

Marisa Mandler’s studio is at the end of a sinister block: past soviet housing complexes, the DDR’s Nazi archives, and right before the Stasi prison museum complex…[read on…]


David Button - "Community Movement"

Article by Natasha Klimenko, Studio Visit photos by Rian Davidson – in Berlin; Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012.

Following the flow of the Spree river, the urban landscape of Berlin transforms in the East of the city, growing desolate and industrial. Formerly a German bathhouse turned customs office during the GDR, the currently run-down Spree Studios are soon to be renovated and transformed into a more “people friendly” site…[read on…]


Sinta Werner

Article by Alison Hugill, Studio Visit photos by Rian Davidson – in Berlin; Monday, Oct. 15, 2012.

Opposite Stattbad Wedding – one of Berlin’s community swimming pools turned nightclub and exhibition space – stand several former warehouse buildings, their courtyards covered in old, faded commercial signage. Through a heavy metal door and up a winding exposed-stone stairwell, we arrive at Sinta Werner’s tidy, white studio…[read on…]


Eva Maria Salvador

Article by Alison Hugill, Studio Visit photos by Conor Clarke – in Berlin; Monday, Sep.10, 2012.

Eva Maria Salvador’s remarkable ‘Köpfe’ (Heads) sculptures are hidden away in her Kreuzberg studio, never exhibited as such or seen by more than a select few. Even when I enter the workspace, a visit that was planned for the purpose of viewing her recent work, they remain partially covered and tucked out of sight…[read on…]


Iris Touliatou

Article by Cassandra Bird, Studio Visit photos by Chloé Richard – in Berlin; Wednesday, May 16, 2012.

Born in Athens, Iris Touliatou currently lives and works between her Paris and Berlin studios. One week before the opening of her solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Leipzig (GfZK) I decided to pay her a visit in her studio in Mitte for a sneak preview of the works and inspirations for this show…[read on…]
