Mega is situated close to Ahrensfelde in Germany. I noticed it on Falk Berlin -map from year 2003 but it has disappeared from later editions. I asked the Falk map makers what Mega means, but they said it is a mistake on the map – there’s nothing but field in the location. The map maker told me that it is “a commercial remark placed wrongly on the map.”.
I think Mega is a loophole. It is a non-place that questions land owning and borders – as well as the whole global economical and political systems related to them. I built the first building of Mega, a clay house and made a stop motion animation of it. Later, I had to remove the house from the field and I made a museum out of it, Museum of Mega.
