Simon Faithfull
Mobile Research Station no.1, 2009

In a wilderness at the heart of Berlin a strange apparition has landed. Faithfull’s Mobile Research Station no.1 is a curious hybrid – half hi-tech Antarctic Research Station / half rusty-broken-dumpster. Using a standard building-waste container as its basis, the station nevertheless forms a luxurious designer-pod provided for an eccentric set of researchers. Rather than researching the frozen wastes of Antarctica or the moons of Saturn, the invited artist/researchers have begun their research into the surrounding wilderness and urban zones of uncertainty that still lie at the centre of Berlin.

Researchers include:
Esther Polak (Amsterdam): 18th – 22nd Aug
Annika Lundgren (Gothenburg/Berlin): 17th – 21st Aug
Martin John Callanan (London): 24th – 30th
Katie Paterson (London): 31st Aug – 6th Sep
Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson (Manchester/Berlin): 5th – 10th Sep
Simon Faithfull (Berlin/London): 11th – 14th sep
Tim Knowles (London): 15h – 19th Sep
