Spot #1: What a pity that there was no Christmas cucumber
Pickled cucumbers on the Christmas tree. That is an old tradition in the United States. A small pickled cucumber, usually in the style of a glass bauble, is hung amidst the branches of an already decorated tree.

The upcoming year will bring three great events: the new Midsummer Sculpture Festival in June, an Experience to the Berlin Art Week in September and the 15th edition of sculpture network’s International Forum in November.
Light and Sculpture

Blacker than Black: The Dark Side of Sculpture
Blackness, darkness, shadows. With Halloween just gone by, most people might think of haunted castles and melancholy feelings when hearing these words. But why so one-sided?

We have discussed with three sculpture network members what makes creating art that embraces the dark side so special. Dive into the darkness and experience it from a different perspective!

With a total of 30 blocks of ice, the artist creates a giant melting clock at two locations in the city, making climate change tangible for visitors. On view from 11 December.
