The Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata creates nests of civil disobedience with his “Berlin Tree Huts” that spread from the Haus der Kulturen der Welt to the trees in the park, while interrogating the architecture of modernity. His „social sculptures“ were exhibited at both Documenta 8 and 9, the Venice Biennale and Shanghai. The publication features essays of the curator, Valerie Smith and art critic Denys Zacharopoulos. The color plates show archival material, sketches and large-sized installation shots of the tree huts in the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the surrounding park.
