Project realized with the support of the KUNSFONDS eV.
In March 1994, poppy seeds were sown on an uncultivated area of about 25,000 m2, near the Potsdamer Platz in the center of Berlin. The area had been rendered infertile by the weed killers used along the East Berlin Wall for several decades and was cleaned and ploughed. Despite the poor soil, poppies bloom in different places during the summer weeks.
