Koen Potgieter is a photographer and researcher based in Berlin.
He holds a Master of Arts from the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen
and a PhD in literature from the Freie Universitaet Berlin.
Combining his educational background and his photographic work, Potgieter is interested in the ways in which photography and writing intersect and reinforce each other.
Potgieter has taught at the Freie Universitaet Berlin and at Leibniz Universitaet Hannover, and has exhibited his photographic work internationally.
His current project Another City explores the desire to be transformed by a new place. Following young people on their journey to settle in big cities, the work is primarily shot in Berlin and Warsaw since the summer of 2018 and is currently ongoing.
