Presented by Kunstrepublik e.V.

As I went walking I saw a sign there And on the sign it said "No Tres-passing". But on the other side it didn’t say nothing, That side was made for you and me. When the sun came shining, and I was strolling, And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling, As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting: This land was made for you and me.
(From Woody Guthrie, This Land is Your Land, 1940)

Matthias Einhoff, Philip Horst, Markus Lohmann, Harry Sachs, and Daniel Seiple: the initiators of the Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum see their activity as an artistic strategy in the context of increasing privatization of public space. Bored by the wasteful tedium of economic determinism, their exhibition project /LANDREFORM/ resorts to Woody Guthrie’s dust bowl ballade This Land Is Your Land to generate hypothetical strategies of action. /LANDREFORM/ is introduced during the nightly events of the 5th Berlin Biennale and continues beyond the guest appearance of the 5th Berlin Biennale in Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum. /LANDREFORM/ is an expansion of the previous exhibition series /Bestandsaufnahme/, /Parcella/, and /Spekulationen/.

A 5th Berlin Biennale and KUNSTrePUBLIK e. V. cooperation.
