MAY to JULY 2022 how to live in the echo of other places Annika Kahrs

The two-part multimedia installation entitled how to live in the echo of other places offers the opportunity to experience subjective memories of distant places both visually and acoustically, but in the urban space. For several months, Kahrs is to occupy the premises of Schuppen 29 [Shed 29] at the former Free Port of Hamburg, the end point of an imaginary line between the old city centre and HafenCity.

Date MAY to JULY 2022



​​​​THE GATE is an art walk with audio library that invites visitors to experience Hamburg’s vision of the 'gateway to the world' from new perspectives.
Some sixteen German and international artists showcase their interpretations of the Gateway in senses both real and metaphorical as part of site-specific installations. An extensive audio library features gateways at every corner.

From MAY 2021 Bee Chapel HafenCity Terence Koh

After equally delighting inhabitants, art enthusiasts and passers-by during the month of August in 2019, Canadian artist Terence Koh’s BEE CHAPEL HAFENCITY moved from the Störtebeker Ufer to the rooftop of the Ecumenical Forum HafenCity. After recovering in a protected place during wintertime, the bees returned back to the BEE CHAPEL on the roof of the Ecumenical Forum, where the installation is open again for visitors.

For almost four months now, the brass relief BEDFORM has been complementing the composition of Dar-es-Salaam-Platz. Named after the youngest of Hamburg's nine twin cities in Tanzania, the square marks a central entrance to HafenCity and thus also functions as an important station on THE GATE's art walk.
