haus: Funkhaus Berlin Studios

Not unlike on the edge of a small town, next to the Shell petrol station stands a building with many bricks. Funkhaus Berlin Studios. It's huge. An old radio station back in the day. Curiously there's a lot of clocks here; all running on different times, so you're never really late.

Monica Levy talked to us about her latest work, translating her berlin backyard into sensitive, softly spoken watercolours. Sitting in recycled frames sourced in local markets, these watercolours share the frame's memories of travel photographs and souvenir paintings. Layering and blending the histories of ordinary people and their travelling views.
