Artist and architect
Niels Betori Diehl was born in Rome in 1975 and has lived in Berlin since 1999. As an artist with a background in design and architecture, he works in a variety of media such as video, sculpture, installation and writing. Since 2005 he collaborates with Barbara K. Prokop as NBDBKP. Together they work on interior design projects, interdisciplinary large-scale exhibitions and publications, and organise panel discussions based on topics arising in their individual research and practices. Currently, NBDBKP is working on an online web shop project that blurs the line between art and marketing, combining political and social issues with easy-to-wear pieces. Niels has a BFA in Architecture from Università degli Studi di Roma and Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee, and a BFA/MFA in Visual Culture Studies from Universität der Künste, Berlin.
