Is it possible to excavate the site and use unnatural materials for the structure, such as concrete, iron, plexiglass? Will it be possible to have tools or helpers? Thank you


Regarding materials, if you need for the structure, yes.   You can use concrete, iron is natural material, plexiglass also you can use. Note you have around 1,5 tone of glass collected. Regard location it will be possible the place in the nature where we have collected glass in public actions

We have a voluntary network and people that would love to help artist on production, just make notes on the support you will require. In your project just make notes on the support you will require Also it can be defined on second step of project  if the project is selected.   Note that feasibility of the project is one of the criteria of evaluation.

I am considering applying for your fascinating open call! 

However, I could not find any information on where the intervention/sculpture could be placed. Is this still open to debate or are there a few options? Furthermore, what tools do you have on-site? I look forward to hearing back from you so I can send an accurate proposal. 

all the best from Berlin. 


The sculpture could be placed probably at the same place where we have collected glass in public eco actions. The place called from climbing community “glass road”. Now we have removed glass

We have on site woodworking combined tools, stoneworking tools and metalworking tools.

About other tools it depends on project and we may engage also external labs if project require it.

Good luck with your project!



I wanted to ask if the final work that we present  our end goal in formal terms, would be presented in an outdoors or indoors situation  or if this is depending on the artwork and at discretion of the artist

Thank you very much
