Poets‘ Corner in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg
Watching Things Grow
Floating University | Lilienthalstraße 32 | 10965 Berlin
Since 2018, the former rainwater retention pool has been open to the public as a Floating University, a place for gathering, sharing and learning. Floating University also stands for a space created by humans, which nature has reclaimed over the years and now continues to exist in an exchange between humans, animals and nature and relies on sustainable, solidary interconnections. While new species are emerging and growing here, a unique architecture has also developed that is open to the neighbourhood and the inhabitans of Berlin as an opportunity for social and cultural participation. The interaction with existing Naturecultures also shapes the texts of the readers in various ways. All of them have already encountered the Floating in their own practice and will refer to the unique place in their texts.
