M85 are ground-launched bomblets, which can be dispensed from a variety of cluster munitions, including artillery cargo projectiles, mortars and rockets. The two functions of M85 are: to penetrate armour and to create fragmentation for an anti-personnel/anti-materiel effect. M85 are small and of cylindrical shape. M85 are the only bomblet containing a self destruct (SD) mechanism that have been used in combat; in 2003 by the United Kingdom in Iraq, and in 2006 by Israel in Lebanon, 2009 by Georgia against Russland, and presumably in 2011 by Thailand against Cambodia. The exhibition »M85 – Fragments of a Cluster Bomb« tries to reconstruct the trajectory of M85: from a spot where they exploded (or not) back to their origins. Dead or wounded civilians, farmers, paramedics, surgeons, deminers, soldiers, politicians, dealers, factory workers, engineers… Who are the individuals behind, besides, and in front of M85, and what is their relation to the weapon and to each other?

For the inaugural show we invited many friends and artists we personally know. Its title Concrete, Sausage and other Team Ghosts refers to two aspects – the history of the house and the football world championship (the official football of these championships is called “Teamgeist”).
