Artists with works at this studio


Anja Teske (b. 1964, Minden) studied Fine Art with Heinrich Riebesehl at the Hochschule Hannover as well as in St. Petersburg and at the Slade School of Fine Art in London, where she took her MA in Media. Her works are portraits of persons and spaces in the outer and inner sphere. The examples presented are Juwelia alias Stefan and Werner Unverzagt. Juwelia combines facets of life such as identity, love, individualism, artwork-man; a person who questions her identity permanently and is forced to create it anew. Werner Unverzagt, the last of the Unverzagt Family, lived 12 years in his hotel Villa Balzer without any guests until his death; but being prepared for guests every minute. The hotel reflects the history of the last 150 years. A recipient of several awards like the one-year Schloss Balmoral grant, the Lower-Saxony Art Prize for Young Artists, the Jean Spencer Award, advancement from Berliner Senat, she exhibited extensively in Germany, Austria, Spain, Denmark, and USA. Recently she has worked in residency programs in China and Island. Anja Teske currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
