“…first there was the garden”

The conversation of two experts will look into the use and meaning of the garden, both public and private. The garden today fulfils more demands than ever. It is a refuge from digitalised life and a bridge to nature. It is cultivated and untamable. While for centuries the aim was to control nature, today it serves more as a place for retreat, a possible surrogate for wilderness, a habitat for animals or the dream of self-sufficiency, a place of community. The essays deal with garden as art, garden as a place of enchantment, garden as action and resistance.
