A team of seven researchers/artists led by visual artist Simon Faithfull have set up an unique mobile research station in Berlin to investigate existing urban waste ground in down town Berlin.
Mobile Research Station No.1 is a curious hybrid – half hi-tech Antarctic Research Station / half rusty-broken-dumpster – built from standard waste container, the station encompasses a luxurious designer-pod for an eccentric set of researchers. Rather than researching the frozen wastes of Antarctica or the moons of Saturn, the invited artist have begun their research into the surrounding wilderness and urban zones of uncertainty that still lie at the centre of Berlin.

Their initial findings and questions can be found the station’s blog as they develop.

The research station is commissioned by SKULPTURENPARK BERLIN_ZENTRUM for their project Wunderland. The station can be found on the open ground between Seydelstr and Beuthstr on online here

Researchers include:
Esther Polak (Amsterdam)
Annika Lundgren (Gothenburg/Berlin)
Martin John Callanan (London)
Katie Paterson (London)
Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson (Manchester/Berlin)
Simon Faithfull (Berlin/London)
