Surveillance, Visibility and Invisibility, featured artists that work within Funkhaus, the former GDR Radio Headquarters in Berlin, an old rich site-specific context, tackling ideas of privacy and institution, the visible versus the invisible, and the notion of being seen by the unseen. Through experiments in multi-media and live performance, international artists of various backgrounds, will utilize the metaphor of surveillance to examine past and present society.
What conception of the human and social body did the architects have when they imagined this building? Was it even a criteria? Is it possible to habit the space in any other way than a ghost?
Our performance is an attempt of presence in a space made for giants.
An attempt to be seen, not to be observed.
An attempt to be heard, not to be intercepted.
A space made for giants
