"Wooden monuments" for the Grosser Tiergarten park

„Brachland-Aktion“ im Großen Tiergarten in Berlin, März 1946 Foto: Erich O. Krueger Mitte Museum/ Bezirksamt Mitte von Berlin Bezirksbildstelle Tiergarten, Bild 12/13The youth project of the 3rd form of primary school Heinrich-Seidel-Grundschule explored the Grosser Tiergarten together with wood-carver Martin Henkel. An excursion to five sites took the group back into the times of the park as a hunting ground, a Baroque park, a landscape garden, to the times of World War II and the post-war years and to the time from the fall of the Berlin Wall up to today. The five sites visited were not only related to five different time periods, but also to the five major tree species found in the Grosser Tiergarten.
The results of the project can be viewed in the form of exhibits in the garden of the Mitte Museum which is located in the school building of the former 32nd community school (built from 1864 to 1866 by urban construction councillor Adolf Gerstenberg).

Sunday, 9 Sep 2012 - Vernissage: 2 p.m. in the Mitte Museum garden

Five temporary "Wooden monuments" cut from the trunks of the five major tree species tell about the history and changes to the park, the man-made layout as a natural habitat and the impressions of the garden detectives.

Exhibition: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Mitte Museum garden

Anyone interested is more than welcome!
