About

The second in a series of screen-based works on show at Chronus Art Center in 2015, Fernsehturm is the creation of German artist, Wolfgang Staehle. It features two cinematic components that resonate in the form of live transmission of images captured from inside the Berlin TV Tower. Originally built as an East Block Icon and electronic 'viewpoint' for spying on both East and West Berlin, the Fernsehturm exists in a distinct cultural and technological realm: going beyond TV alone, it is also a historical, economic and military projection of power.
