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.
