SPOTTED IN PASSING: OUR DREAMS IN BÖCKLERPARK

This often overlooked and hardly known sculpture in Böcklerpark on the northern bank of Urbanhafen at the canal in Kreuzberg 61 was made in 1989 by an acclaimed Turkish artist Mehmet Aksoy.

Together with a group of 8 German and Turkish teenagers he created 21 ceramic reliefs which were later mounted on a 1.50m x 2.10m marble plate. The second marble plate standing behind the one seen in this picture and of almost the same size tells the story of rejuvenation: as your eyes move up towards the upper edge of the stone the images are getting “younger”. And so the past is left behind.

The sculpture is called Unsere Träume – Our Dreams.

    Hand crafted fossils… that’s what this makes me think of. Lovely.
