Beginning in July 2023, the freely accessible “Baumschule Kulturforum” (Kulturforum Tree Nursery), an artistic horticultural installation, will be put in place under the creative guidance of Klaus Biesenbach and atelier le balto.
The Baumschule Kulturforum installation will slowly transform into a temporary, freely accessible and participatory cultural and museum park-like space encompassing all of the neighbouring institutions. Young groves of trees will mature over the summer, shading the robust wooden seating and encouraging visitors to linger and mingle. Initially some 80 trees will be planted on about 250 square metres of open space in front of Café Estrade on the Piazzetta and elsewhere. A total of 200 trees are to be planted in the following weeks on the grassy roundabout in front of St Matthew’s Church and ultimately on Scharounplatz.
