The Hambacher Forst is located in Germany’s largest lignite mining area. By occupying it, climate activists are protesting both specifically against lignite mining and against Germany’s energy policy as a whole, which is based on extractivism, the exploitation of land and resources for profit. As part of the exhibition Potosí Principle – Archive, Stephan Mörsch talks about his work Beechtown/Blutbuchingen, Hambacher Forst: Models of the activists’ treehouses.

With Stephan Mörsch, Alice Creischer, Andreas Siekmann
