The new ARENA project is conceived in the shape of a small amphitheater so that the sculpture can be presented both as a “Speakers Corner” — a low-key
“hotspot” for local participation and self-expression („Audio Graffiti“) but also function as a stage for small events and concerts.
The sculpture is created from 4 modular elements that are fitted together as a single amphitheater or split up into different elements that
function as concert “boxes” with more sound volume.

From July 1st to November 2019.

Location: Pallasseum, Pallasstrasse 5 (near the corner of Potsdamerstrasse)
Financed from Hauptstadtkulturfonds Berlin.
Produced by the Kulturpark 3000 e.V. / Gallery Zwitschermachine.
