»I explain the creative as the artistic, and that is my concept of art.« joseph beuys 1978c

For Beuys, the society of the future is a great »social sculpture« in which we all participate together. In 1977, he has his Free International University take place at documenta 6. Every day he holds discussions there with the public and with people working on alternative models of society.

On the Museum Square, the Bundeskunsthalle and the Kunstmuseum Bonn are setting up a meeting place that follows these ideas. For this purpose, students of the Alanus Hochschule für Kunst und Gesellschaft have designed an architectural platform and a sculptural straw bale garden. There, under the guidance of the collective »A Fair Land Pforzheim«, different varieties of pumpkins are grown and harvested together – a growing process that promises abundant harvest and use. Throughout the summer, the platform will host talks and workshops on various topics will take place: How do we want to shape our future? What is socially and ecologically sustainable? Who owns the public space? We invite you to drop by and join the conversation!
