Filming Plants Politically with Zheng Bo

On 9 October, which marks the Solar Term Cold Dew (寒露), Zheng Bo invites participants with some experience in filmmaking or photography to think about how to film plants politically. Starting at the Gropius Bau, the group will walk to the Tiergarten and experiment with ways of filming plants that present them not only as biological beings but also as political actors.
