Renowned British filmmaker and author Sheila Hayman is this year’s Artist in Residence at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). The three-month residency is made possible by a cooperation between the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program (BKP), the Department of Culture and Museums of the City of Potsdam and PIK.
Sheila Hayman was selected from over 300 applications for the Artist in Residence program, which put out an international call for applicants for the first time this year. Her residency in Potsdam takes place from September to November 2020. During her stay, she will focus on the contradictions and ambivalences of artificial intelligence regarding issues of sustainability and climate change. The multiple award-winning journalist and director of numerous documentaries is currently working in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab on a book and film titled “Senseless” on these topics.
This year’s Artist in Residence program jury included Silvia Fehrmann (Director BKP), Margret Boysen / Reinhild Costa (PIK), Bianka Peetz-Mühlstein / Celine Bradler-Ehlert (Potsdam State Capital) as well as curator Alexandra Jach and theater producer Julian Klein.

The PIK Artists-in-Residence Program is a cooperative project between the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program and the State Capital of Potsdam and is financed by funds from the German Federal Foreign Office and the State Capital of Potsdam.
The PIK Artists-in-Residence Program was founded in 2011.
