Carolin Liebl and Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler

Liebl and Schmid-Pfähler, together with nine other artists, opened 2019 a joint studio. It is available for artists of various genres, serving as a platform for the exchange of practices.The duo was the EASTN-DC Artists-in-Residence at Cardiff Metropolitan University (UK) in 2019. Liebl and Schmid-Pfähler were 2020 awarded the scholarship of the Kunstarkaden Kempten with a residency during which they realised their fourth solo exhibition.
