Past Dates

The number of participants is limited; please register before 17 August 2020 via . First come, first served.

Participants will get closer to urban weeds by sitting with them and drawing them. At the end of the walk, the drawings will be buried. With the help of microbes they will break down, becoming compost.

During his residency at the Gropius Bau, Zheng Bo is in exchange with scientists to deepen his research into the politics of plants. On the Solar Terms of the East Asian lunisolar calendar he invites the public to join him for open studios that include talks, walks or workshops.
