Artworks in the wilderness

Piotr Kosiewski has visited the 5th Berlin Biennale and was impressed by the sculpture park on a strip of land where the Berlin Wall used to stand. "A number of works have been exhibited on the neglected wasteland with its wild plants, where luxury office blocks are being built. You have to search for some of the artworks between piles of rubble or fight through the bushes to get to them. The exhibition in this special place reminds one of the differences that still exist in Berlin, which no doubt will not be eroded only by pulling down old buildings. ... Outsourcing a part of the exhibition to this location has wrenched visitors from their viewing habits. The curators of the Biennale have taken the art out of the secure rooms of the gallery and the museum and forced the artists to confront the reality around them."
