The exhibition Andere Gärten (Different Gardens) opens this Friday in Berlin and Urban Plant Research is honored to be participating with a new video, Beobachtungen/Observations. We’re especially excited about the show because it is not only about urban gardens, it will be in an urban garden!
Körnerpark is one of the most surprising green spaces I’ve ever seen in Berlin. In the middle of the bustling, sometimes gritty district of Neukölln, you can follow steps downwards from street level to find yourself in a sunken garden. It is dignified, neoclassical, symmetrical. Lined by trees, flowers and sculptures, a long lawn runs between a cascading fountain at one end and the former orangerie at the other.
The orangerie now houses a gallery run by the district of Neukölln. Thank you to the curator, Dorothee Bienert, for inviting us to be part of the exhibition, which opens with a reception at 7pm this Friday, July 17, and runs through October 11.
Neither Sara nor I are in Berlin this summer so if you make it to the show and would like to send us a photo or your feedback, we would be thrilled! We are at urbanplantresearch at gmail dot com.
