International Symposium
4 July 2015
Haus der Kulturen der Welt
Concept: Sandra Bartoli; Organized by Chair for Urban Design and Urbanization TU Berlin Jörg Stollmann and Sandra Bartoli in cooperation with Haus der Kulturen der Welt


The conference explores Tiergarten, Berlin’s oldest park, understood as a unique landscape of transgression. Tiergarten transgresses heritage, ecology, urbanism, and humanism, existing as a precious anomaly and a model for future environments in an ever expanding sea of urbanization. Tiergarten’s transgression can become a key to shift established ways to talk about the city. The conference aims to evaluate several aspects of urban space that question and expand the current discourse on sustainability, for instance unbridled plant growth and close proximity of species, the unmaintained, the incommensurable, the extraterritorial, the outlaw, the simultaneity of (contradicting) histories, to mention some.

The conference is divided into four thematic sections:
1) Transgressing Heritage
2) Transgressing Ecology 
3) Transgressing Urbanism 
4) Transgressing Humanism

Participants: Alessandra Ponte (keynote), Fahim Amir, Michael Baers, Martin Conrads, Eva Simone Hayward, Toni Karge, Gunnar Klack, Stefano Mancuso, Franziska Morlok, Sandra Parvu, Karin Reisinger, Luise Rellensmann, Chris Wilbert, Piero Zanini
