Media Spree 2004
The project looks at a former industrial area on the River Spree in Berlin’s Friedrichshain/Kreuzberg district. Over the past years, this area has developed into a location for media and production firms such as Universal and MTV. Laura Horelli tries to gain access to some of the companies in the area by contacting representatives of companies and asking for permission to photograph the river view from their headquarters. The artist also pretends to be interested in buying an apartment and visits property for sale in the area. The investigation is presented as a collection of documents, photographs and texts arranged on a wall and a table.
