Anyone who wants to use collected and donated wood to build imaginative wall reliefs on the walls of two buildings next to the community platform. By working together, the parking garage will be turned into a beautiful palace. A newly installed blackboard can be used by all. We also build something on the room next to the Wiesencafé platform.

Everybody is welcome to help build and design. Foreknowledge is not required.
Anyone can learn to build with wood!

Kurzbiographie Martin Kaltwasser

Martin Kaltwasser (*1965) studied fine arts and architecture. He works in the fields of installation, object, design, performance, architecture and urban research and especially in public space. He works mostly site-related and combines research with spatial, object-related, architectural implementations. Many of his projects are participatory and use waste from urban space. From 2004 to 2015 he worked together with the artist Folke Köbberling. Since 2013 he has been working as a solo artist and in changing collaborations, for example 2013-2014 together with the theatre group Showcase Beat Le Mot Construction of the theatre building Ding Dong Dom in Berlin. Construction of the Los Angeles Garden for the IGA Berlin 2017, subsequently as a permanent extension of the Gardens of the World. Since 2019 Martin Kaltwasser is professor for sculpture at the Department of Art and Art Science of the Institute of Art and Material Culture at the Technical University Dortmund.
