OAK PLANTING IN HONOR OF JOSEPH BEUYS
ALLIANZ CAMPUS, UNTERFÖHRING

Two oak trees with basalt stelae have been enriching the grounds of the Allianz Campus Unterföhring since 19 November 2021. The planting campaign took place in a small circle, due to Corona, on the initiative of Eric Wolzenburg (Head of Allianz Art Insurance) and under the patronage of Renate Wagner (Member of the Board of Management of Allianz SE and Member of the Board of Management of Allianz Deutschlang AG) and Andreas Bittl (Head of the Allianz branch in Unterföhring).
In order to make the oak trees accessible not only to employees, but to all citizens, they were planted - in the spirit of Beuys - at publicly accessible locations on the Allianz Campus, namely on Heinrich-Hildebrand-Weg, and "thus [...] form a public and social place of encounter across genertions". (Andreas Bittl)

The basalt stelae...

...and the oaks are set and planted.

The oaks still need to be secured with planting stakes.

The oak is still watered....

...and also the stele is not neglected.
