From April to September 2018, a rainwater basin close to Tempelhofer Feld became an open space for experimentation and a structure for the exchange of different kinds of knowledge. Participants from more than 20 international universities and experts from the fields of art, architecture, music and dance were building the campus and diving into topics like water filtration, coexistence with other species in an urban context, or nationalism and identity politics. As part of this project we were designing and maintaining the greenhouse, which serves as the main entrance to the site. The scaffolding structure was a home to about several hundred tomato plants from 40 different natural
varieties. They grow side by side with potatoes and other edible and beneficial plants. Combined with information on tomato plant care and biodiversity, the tomato seeds will be distributed to the visitors - while the fruits of our labor were turned into ketchup and fries.
