Press Release: Wunderland exhibition series: August 28, 2009

Simon Faithfull
Mobile Research Station no.1, 2009

The station can be found on the open ground between Seydelstrasse and Beuthstrasse, Berlin / U2 Spittelmarkt

Findings will be presented: Sunday, September 20, 2009: Research Communications Day

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.

Esther Polak (Amsterdam): 18th – 22nd Aug
Annika Lundgren (Gothenburg/Berlin): 17th – 21st Aug
