A Site Specific Collaborative Project

Hinterland is a site specific-complex of works that reflects upon local production in relation to the forms of globalization imagined by past generations. The former König Smoked Fish Factory, is represented by a recreation of Mr. Erich König’s upstairs conference room, which is relocated to a factory area downstairs that have been recreated as an art gallery. “Hinterland” can be both the silence behind the front and an economic base for warfare (originally it is a military term). Presently, our location in the Berlin-Reineckendorf district is mistaken for a variant of the silence in a hinterland, much like the former socialist version of Brandenburg. In the artificial economies of the Cold War, the East Berlin factories represented economical hinterlands, by creating a socialist version of an egalitarian utopia. While in West Berlin, the economy was propped-up by West-German government, and the West in general. Within a special kind of West Berlin melancholy, fish smoking was a strong local tradition – of bourgeois utopia.

If you take the S-Bahn be sure to exit at the Schönholz station – not the Wollankstrasse station.
