Wunsch­pflanze

Berlin, 2011

In the kitchen on the 4th floor of an apartment building in Berlin-Neukölln stands a table covered with potted plants. Each visitor is invited to choose a plant and take it to the park opposite the building. There the visitors can write a wish on a piece of paper and plant it together with the flower. The result is a plant bed of wishes in a public park at Weichselplatz in Neukölln.

Concept & Performance: Mahela Rostek and Martina von Holn

The work was shown as part of Berlin festival '48 Stunden Neukölln 2011'.
