an installation by Agnes Meyer–Brandis

The ResearchRaft - Institute for Art and Subjective Science (FF) is anchoring at the control tower, Airport Tempelhof, where the current results from the Laboratory of Applied Falling (LAF) will be presented. The special focus of this department is the investigation of migration movements inside, outside and above Earth, focusing on moments and objects in a pending state between falling and flying. In addition,
the Central Department for Control Rooms (ZAK) will be revealed for the first time in the 10 years of successful research activity of the FF. The Central Department for Control Rooms is a constantly transforming installation and poetic archive that allows one to experience a variety of experiments, observations and methods of the artist and her guests.
