Die Stadt kompostieren. Perspektivwechsel mit Marco Clausen (Co-Initiator des Prinzessinnengartens, der Nachbarschaftsakademie und der DIY-Struktur Die Laube)
Environmental thinking goes beyond nations, languages, disciplines and species. Like the exhibition “How to talk with birds, trees, fish, shells, snakes, bulls and lions”, projects such as the Prinzessinnengarten shift perspectives on the relationship between humans, non-human beings, cities and ecology. We talk with Marco Clausen about socio-ecological transformations, common goods and the question of the right to a city and how self-organized forms of collective learning can contribute to this.

The Making-of… oder wie wurde es gemacht?
How a work of art was created, what materials and techniques it is based on – these questions are the focus of the series “The Making-of…”. In the exhibition “The Elephant in Space”, restorer Johannes Noack and curator Nina Schallenberg will use Jeff Koon’s “Two Ball 50/50 Tank” to address the question of which physical-chemical trick substances artists use. The series of talks begins on 18.04.2019 on “Unschlitt/Tallow” by Joseph Beuys.
Unless otherwise stated, free of charge plus admission, registration not required. Further information and the complete programme of events at: www.smb.museum/hbfZum Hamburger Bahnhof
