Eliasson gives the welcoming address for the summer 2013 semester of the Institut für Raumexperimente (Institute for Spatial Experiments). The Institut für Raumexperimente was affiliated with the Berlin University of the Arts from 2009 to 2014 as an experimental education and research project, led by Eliasson, its founding director, together with co-directors Christina Werner and Eric Ellingsen. The institute was housed in the same building as Studio Olafur Eliasson, so that school and studio would mutually benefit from their respective activities, and the institute expanded the university into the broader city of Berlin.
