Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is a project by five artists who founded KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V. Matthias Einhoff, Philip Horst, Markus Lohmann, Harry Sachs and Daniel Seiple. Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is located on an urban wasteland which was formerly the “Mauerstreifen,” the military zone within the Berlin Wall. It remains vacant to this day. With approximately 5 hectares of open lots, it offers a vast space and unique history to host various socio-cultural activities. Modecentrum, a former fashion center, sits on the southwest boundary of this area. On the third floor, KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V. has rented an 800 square meter hall with windows which face this vacant land. Rather than encouraging “plop art” or following the tradition of many open-air museums, Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is interested in sculpture as a process that has the potential to reveal and critique the social, historical, and structural contexts provided by the site. It is not interested in placing objects into an already cultivated urban or park landscape.
