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.

While reliefs traditionally transmitted history by depicting concrete situations, the complex colonial history of trade seems difficult to represent figuratively today. Instead, the artist relies on typologies of merchant ships of the Tanzania route, which make a historical process sensually-materially accessible.

From 18 May 2020 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 on May 18, where the installation is open again for visitors.
