OAK PLANTING IN HONOR OF JOSEPH BEUYS
MIESBACH, WAITZINGER KELLER
As one of the first people interested in the planting campaign, the head of the cultural office, Isabella Krobisch, came forward and started looking for a suitable planting site. Since 14 April, Miesbach has also been one of the towns and municipalities that, together with the DASMAXIMUM Foundation and STADTKULTUR Netzwerk Bayerischer Städte e.V., carried out an oak planting in honour of the artist on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Joseph Beuys' birth. In typical April weather between snowfall and sunshine, a handful of participants came to the Waitzinger Keller to lend a hand in the planting action, observing the corona-related guidelines. Oak and basalt, which in the sense of a social sculpture are meant to encourage communal and sustainable action for the good of society, have found an ideal place on the south side of the Waitzinger Keller Cultural Centre.
