At the end of the exhibition programme "Traces – Architectures – Projections", which took place from September 2017 to January 2019 at Berlin's Bärenzwinger, the catalogue of the project will now be published with a comprehensive documentation of the exhibitions and events.
The former animal enclosure at Köllnischer Park housed several generations of brown bears for about eighty years and has been open since September 2017 as a space for site-specific art. The publication "Bärenzwinger Berlin | Traces – Architectures – Projections" documents the sensitive transformation of the Bärenzwinger, whose contemporary exhibition programme examined the particular historical and architectural features of the location from an artistic perspective. The book also includes contributions from the symposium on the bear pit, which took place at Märkisches Museum in October 2018 and brought together artistic, scientific, and urban positions to discuss the past, present, and future use, function, and significance of the site.
