Event Description

All Info and Registration is online at

Summer School 2016 hosted by Field Station e.V. is the first of a series of informal multi-agent collaborative experiments focusing on Field Station: Theory, Practice and its Basecamp. No more than thirty students are accepted, each workshop is comprised of ten students. Workshops are programmed and supervised by specialized Field Agents working intensively with students two to three days out of the two week workshop period. The Teufelsberg is open daily from dusk till dawn exposing students and their work to the general public, as such guests e.g. laymen, politicians, academics, artists are welcome to propose evening events e.g. food kitchens, performances, talks at Field Station.

Four * (Site + Question + Kit + Group) = Four Field Stations + Basecamp

The Teufelsberg and former NSA Field Station Berlin with its historically significant background and unique aesthetics is a fantastic location. Built from Berlin's World War II rubble, Teufelsberg is the highest point in the city's urban space. It is "crowned" by the former NSA Field Station once used as a radar and listening post during the Cold War. The abandoned station and abandoned post German reunification investor project is now a space of possibilities: often seen as a utopian place overlooking Berlin, it is the ideal location for exploring contemporary questions related to our habitats.

A key aspect is: students create their own compact field stations exploring the histories and ecologies within the various conditions offered by the premises. Each location suggests unique research topics. Student will receive field kits and/or vouchers for field station components.

Field Station Theory engages sociology, anthropology, media, science studies and philosophy relating to the Anthropocene’s agents, actors and spatial systems. Students adapt and create critical models and methods portable to Field Station’s study of the Anthropocene.

Field Station Practice engages local environmental conditions of Teufelsberg. Students create and adapt remote sensing prototypes (e.g. drones, etc) gathering non-humanly perceivable spatial information or non-humanly negotiable spatial conditions of Teufelsberg. Students visualize collected data and speculate on data networking potentials. The workshop is hands on, multimedia based and hosted in the main hangar of Field Station.

Registration is now open and ends 08.08.16, from then on Field Station reading lists and Teufelsberg maps are made available.

09-16.09, first week: Students live on Teufelsberg to gain input from Field Agents (Theory: site visits, references, presentations & Practice: site analysis, field kits, experiments, prototypes) to sense their local environments. Daily evening events.

16.09 mid presentation and party
17.09 relaxation

18-23.09, second week: Four Field Stations adapt methods, models and media tuned to their environments and programs (higher resolution sensing) to create specific field stations while contributing their measurements towards a new opensource interactive geo-referenced data model of Teufelsberg located online and physically at Basecamp. Daily evening events.

23.09 Final presentation and party
24.09 Summer School closes
