Science Gallery Initiative at TU Berlin announces Niamh Schmidtke as Artist in Residence

Collaboration with the University´s Mineralogical Collections

The Science Gallery Initiative at Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) announces Irish-Swedish visual artist, Niamh Schmidtke, as the winner of the third edition of the “Earth Water Sky” research residency funded by the Swiss foundation Fondation Didier et Martine Primat as the main donor. This residency program is dedicated to reward artistic research around the major environmental issues of the 21st century. While its first two residencies “Water” and “Sky” took place at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, the third will be held at the Mineralogical Collections of TU Berlin: “Earth” will have a specific focus on the geology of the planet and the concept of geologic time scales, also known as “deep time”. Artist Niamh Schmidtke will be working with the mineralogist Dr Johannes Giebel, the custodian of the collections.
