Dead Chickens - Monster Cabinet - Berlin Mitte ... a wonderland of massive robot beings, clinking metal sculptures and insect-like animals.
By Udo RauschenbergerThursday 20th December, 2018
In the Spandau suburb in the district of Berlin Mitte, the eerily freaky monster cabin can be found Monsterkabinett in the Schwarzenberg house at Hackeschen Markt,
The artist Hannes Heiner describes the spectacle as a rundown amusement park, which has become independent. Quirky automaton creatures dance, sing and poetry in their biotopes and tell of the journey into the interior. The main actors of the underground show have names like "Vierauge, Orangina und Püppi". They tell stories inspired by the artist's dream world.
Good luck trying to figure out which creations are human and which animated metal artworks which are just moving.
