Karl Philips



Public art project, in the framework of Enter Festival 2015.

‘BRAEM / 27 MC’ is a floating architectural module, suspended from the pillars of part of the modernist Kiel Housing Estate of Renaat Braem. During the project the module functions as a temporary radio studio for (and by) participants from the neighbourhood. CB transmitters offer residents the possibility to communicate back home.

The project represents a kind of post-Facebook era, an era with a penchant for the physical, cooperation and encounters. In contrast to the digitized world, the artist seeks to discuss with Braem about communication, history and idealism.
