Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is a book published in 2010 which documents all the projects at the Park including my time andÂ researchÂ at Simon Faithfull’s Mobile Research Centre in Berlin.
In August 2009, a strange apparition lands in the wilderness ofÂ Skulpturenpark. Faithfull’s Mobile Research Station No.] is aÂ curious hybrid- half hi-tech Antarctic Research Station/halfÂ rusty-broken-dumpster. Using a standard trash container as itsÂ basis, the station nevertheless forms a luxurious designer-podÂ providing for an eccentric set of researchers. Rather thanÂ exploring the frozen wastes of Antarctica or the moons ofÂ Saturn. theÂ limitedÂ artists/researchers undertake theirÂ investigation in the surrounding no man’s land and urbanÂ zones ofÂ uncertainÂ that still lie at the center of Berlin.

Esther Polak, Amsterdam
Annika Lundgren, Gotheborg/Berlin
Martin John Callanan, London

Nick Crowe + Ian Rawlinson, Manchester/Berlin
Simon Faithfull, Berlin/London
