OAK PLANTING IN HONOR OF JOSEPH BEUYS
On November 23, there was a joint planting campaign organized by three important social institutions in Traunreut: Jugendsiedlung, Lebenshilfe and Wilhelm-Löhe-Zentrum. The start was made by the Jugendsiedlung. The tree planting was accompanied by Johannes Stüttgen. As a master student, closest collaborator and artist colleague of Joseph Beuys, he conveys the meaning and the context of the planting in a particularly vivid way. At 2 p.m. he spoke at the Jugendsiedlung about tree planting as a sign of a new idea of the future.
