We are occupying Steinplatz, a public space in Berlin across from the University of the Arts (UdK), for the whole month of August, with greenhouses designed by Tainá Guedes, one in collaboration with BSR, with Bio Water Rheinsberger Preussenquelle, and Speisegut, that will host educational art installations on the subject of water and our food production.
On Saturday 17th of August, there will be curated art performances, workshops for kids and adults lead by NGO Restlos Glücklich and artist Ivona Pelajic, a panel discussion, and info booths from environmental organisations working on water preservation, such as Greenpeace.
In parallel to the events of the weekend of August 17th, we open Water(Proof) an exhibition of contemporary art curated by Dr. Rachel Rits-Volloch at UdK across the street from Steinplatz, and at her MOMENTUM gallery in Kunstquartier Bethanien.
