Interview: Erla S. Haraldsdóttir in Berlin
How long have you been working in Berlin and what’s your experience of working as an artist there? What’s the best thing about this city? Is it very different from Sweden where you were based before?
I have worked in Berlin for the past 11 years. My reason for moving to Berlin was to participate in a studio program of Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien in 2005 – 2006. However I have not been entirely in Berlin during those 11 years, because I was a guest professor in Umea Academy of fine Arts in Sweden the years 2011 – 2015 supervising BFA students. At the same time being based in Berlin, meant traveling back and forth.
