About ArtCenter Berlin

ArtCenter Berlin is a permanent year-round studio for ArtCenter College of Design. The satellite studio hosts trans-disciplinary projects as well as department led initiatives, giving ArtCenter students a deeply immersive experience in a city known for creative re-invention. The program is designed to deliberately move students from a traditional school setting into the atmosphere of a pop-up design office, organized like a creative agency.
ArtCenter Berlin also provides a critical link to the Berlin and European community through sponsored studios, industry partnerships and collaborations while providing the college an opportunity to host professional educational workshops for alumnae and the Berlin creative community.

The Berlin studio began in 2006 under the guidance of Department Chairs
Nik Hafermaas (Graphics) and David Mocarski (Environmental Design). It builds on the college’s history in Europe, beginning with ArtCenter College ofDesign’s Swiss campus in Vevey. ArtCenter Europe (1986 – 1996) graduated over 500 artists and designers who continue to make creative impact in our world today.
