Meet the Artist

This event took place in 2020

Talk to the collaborators behind Berlin Water and Berlin Umbrella

Berlin Water emerged out of Valerie Coffin Price’s visits to Berlin, working alongside German sound artist Sonja Heyer along the city’s waterways, and producing sketches and videos in response to Stephanie Green’s poetry from Berlin Umbrella, as well as the city, the water, its sounds and environment.

Berlin Umbrella is a poetry and soundwalk developed by Stephanie Green and Sonja Heyer, which can also be experienced throughout the festival weekend. Together, the poetry, artwork and sound walk take one on an imaginative journey down the course of Berlin’s River Spree.

Meet the artists to learn more about these remarkable installations and artworks and to hear about the process of collaboration.

Valerie was supported in the making of Berlin Water by the Hosking Houses Trust. With thanks for support from the British Council Berlin, Creative Scotland and the Goethe-Institut Glasgow
