... The sculpturing of social relationships no longer requires the classical hammer and chisel but rather newer, better-suited and precisioned instruments such as in our case, the hammer and feather. With these tools, the sculptures of cognitive nature can be chiselled directly into the perception of the viewer.. ...

ResearchRaft FF
Temporary Laboratory - Berlin
Airport Tower Tempelhof

Originally founded by the artist Agnes Meyer-Brandis 10 years ago, the ResearchRaft is a permanently altering meta-installation in the shape of an "Institute for Art and subjective Science". It is a modular construct build of experimental formats from art, science, theater and movies. It also connects to artistic projects and research movements of all sorts. The institute understands itself as an installation to enter as well as a laboratory, workshop, science center and a poetic archive with the ability to peregrinate and sprawl.
The ResearchRaft is asking questions but gives no answers.

Until now the institute was essentially nomadic and appeared in various temporary manifestations, happenings, fictive structures, mobile and parasitic shapes. To name just a few, research activities of the institute took place on a boat at the end of the world (Beagle Channel, Tierra del Fuego, in cooperation with the CADIC science center in Ushuaia, Argentina, 2009), in Northern Norway beyond the polar circle (in cooperation with the Norwegian Polar Institute NPI), on internationl conferences, such as the International Astronautical Congress IAC (Glasgow, 2009), or on a research airplane of the German Aerospace Center DLR (parabolic flight campaign, 2007).

In fall 2012 the institute was anchoring in the control tower of the historic Tempelhof Airport in Berlin, Germany.
