Die vier Initiatoren des Kulturpark Projekts haben uns in den Kreis der Visionaries aufgenommen.
Im Juni 2012 werden wir das gesamte Essensprogramm des Kulturpark Creative Camps kuratieren. Für Ideen, Vorschläge und Zusammenschlüsse sind wir immer offen. Es wird ein Fest der Sinne!
In the Treptower Park forest in East Berlin, along the Spreeriver, there is an abandoned amusement park. The park, originally called Kulturpark Plänterwald, was built in 1969 by the GDR and was a rare site for Soviet amusement and attraction. After the fall of the wall, the park became the family-owned Spreepark and suffered challenges of access, attendance, and economy. In 2001, the park closed from capital collapse. Ever since, visitors have regularly traversed the fence to explore this jungle of broken thrill machines.
Kulturpark will investigate these lands as a site for cultural imagination.
Kulturpark will connect communities to explore possibilities for shared stories, memories, and ideas.
Kulturpark will instigate physical, social, and collaborative movement.
Kulturpark will propose a future for the park as an evolving constellation of our shared past and presence.
Kulturpark will model responsible forms for creative life and ecology for the 21st Century.
In June 2012, a series of events will explore the potential of these recent ruins, building upon the unique energy of Berlin’s urban, social, cultural, and political landscapes.
The three-week Creative Camp will unite Berlin-born and based visionaries in the production of collaborative site-specific works through a residency camp and outdoor park studio in Spreepark. Creatives were recruited by nomination and an open call for visionaries, and selected through a Berlin-based and international panel of cultural leaders.
The ten-day Kultur-Exchange program will host students and groups from the US and Germany for discussions, workshops, projects, and research exploring the park and its contexts.
Coinciding with the last four days of the 7th Berlin Biennale, the Public Opening will invite local/international audiences for a 2-day conference, interactive installation, and civic exchange. Artworks will include ecological grafitti, sustainable bicycles, a ping pong competition, learning events, radio station, storytelling projects. An online archive will share research with the world..
COME PARK WITH US!
