Artists in Residence at PIK

Since summer 2011, PIK has been using the building of the former photographic refractor as a studio for visiting artists and a place where scientists and artists can come together.

The building known as Kleiner Fotorefraktor is situated opposite PIK's main building. It contains a small kitchen (formerly the photographic lab) and a bright working area beneath the dome which used to house a telescope especially made for the photography of stars. From the late 19th century on, Potsdam astronomers contributed to a - never completed - international star map.

The resident artists are thus brought to the heart of the Albert Einstein science park and integrated into the PIK community. Grant-holders are selected by the Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), Potsdam Town and PIK. Artistic Director Margret Boysen takes care of the artists.
