On Monday, 4 September, the European people’s initiative People4Soil called for a demonstration and art happening at the Brandenburg Gate. The highlight was a spectacular installation by artist Anneli Ketterer. She installed a 25-square-metre piece of Mecklenburg farmland in a Decrustate art object, which was rolled out at the Brandenburg Gate and then suspended from a crane. The famous chief cook Sarah Wiener was also on location and called upon everyone present to pay more attention to what forms the basis of life for us, even if it isn’t “as cute as a panda”.
