Walk, eat and think together
The approximately 2.5 hour walk goes along the northeast border of Berlin, stops at a group soup cooking session followed by a performance, and concludes with reflections on the journey that was taken together. Once again, the fourth PankePerformance seeks to lure the public from the comfort of their homes into nature. The Berlin artist collective "Bergrecherche” [Engl. "Mountain Research”] already offered walks in spring, summer and autumn of 2011 along the Panke River, which was once divided by the Berlin Wall and which since 1989 has been subject of urban nature planning projects. For the collective, the audio walks are about the dissolution of such divisions and limits to perception: nature should once again be visible in the city and one should be able to experience culture in nature, making room for inner reflection along with enhanced attention to one’s surroundings. By the time one arrives at the Uferstudios, other boundaries should have been blurred as well: performer or spectator, art or cooking – who needs such categories, anyway?
