Even by Berlin standards the daily journey travelled to the studio by the artists of Broadcast is surreal: from the black tower of Ostkreuz, past the jail-turned-condos with a view of an unused ferris wheel and through the Gilliam-esque Heizkraftwerk, they arrive at the anachronistically guarded gate of The Funkhaus. Inside, every hallway is lit like a De Chirico painting. But behind every door they have carved out their own real space from the institutional/industrial surreal. Using its rooms like hundreds of larynxes, they are broadcasting again from the Funkhaus.
Curators Amir Fattal and Wil Murray combed these voices, and selected 20 artist’s works to exhibit in the complex's former canteen. BROADCAST displays the occasional harmonies made between artists working privately in a sprawling and often mysterious institution.
