First vernissage of paintings from ACLOUD & PASCAL

A first exhibition of paintings by the graphic designer and illustrator Kerstin Heymach has been shown during the celebration of the 25th anniversary of AWI Potsdam. She accompanied the scientists as part of the team to Longyearbyen and Ny-Ålesund at Spitsbergen in May-June 2017. In the tradition of earlier expedition drawers, her pastels, drawings, sketches, photos and interviews illustrate the beauty of the Nordic landscapes and the difficult work of the researchers and team spirit.

This “Documentary drawings of a scientific expedition to the Arctic” will be published in 2017 and the book can be now ordered (;
