Drawings and herbarium specimens will fill the room, made by students from the past two Botanical Drawing Workshops taught by my friend and fellow urban plant lover, Mira O’Brien.

Galerie im Körnerpark with installation of plant-like pipes and tubes.

For a few more days, deep in Berlin’s Neukölln district, you can find an entire exhibition full of art about urban gardens and plants. And the gallery is in an urban oasis, a sunken garden with fountains, lawns and flowers.

Do stop by Körnerpark if you are in town and see Urban Plant Research exhibiting alongside other botanically-inclined artists. The closing reception at 5pm on Sunday, October 11, will include a tour guided by the curator and several of the artists. We sadly cannot be there in person and hope you will represent us if you are in Berlin!

Wall display of square photos each showing Wolf Klein with an object balanced on his head: here, some dead Christmas tree matter and a kohlrabi

Wolf Klein runs a nomadic flower shop where all the flowers are photographs. Back in the day, he was also one of Urban Plant Research’s first readers. And, in more recent times, he’s been balancing things on his head. Some of them are plants.

Hello, urban plant detectives! We are coming out of our long hiatus to pass along an intriguting Call for Artists that we received from Laura Raber of the annual MS Dockville summer festival, which is held on an urban island in Hamburg.

Now in its fifth year, the festival will cover two months of events, plus an ARTCAMP, an open-air / open process exhibition. ARTCAMP is seeking proposals from artists of all disciplines, emerging and established.

Now that we’ve had a breather after our breathless and beautiful residency at South Slope’s Open Source, I want to start sharing images and footage of what we did there for those who couldn’t make it – and also for those who did visit and contribute, but want to revisit! This video captures just one song of many from our closing event, the Jam for the Plants.

There is just one day left to try your luck at our U8 Plant Quiz, on view in the exhibition “Glück Gehabt!” (That was Lucky!) in the Berlin subway. This exhibition of artists’ posters will be ending tomorrow, and so will our quiz.

You can take the quiz right here on our website. It features six plants that we observered near stations near the U8 subway line. Whether you live in Berlin or not, you are invited to try to guess which station each plant was growing near. I mean, you can always take a virtual walk in Google Earth, right? Those who locate all 6 plants correctly will be entered in a drawing to win a piece of art. 

If you DO live in Berlin and might be passing through the Bernauer Str. station today or tomorrow, you can catch a glimpse of our poster before it is taken down.

We’ll announce the winner next week here on the blog. Good luck!
