The Bärenzwinger (bear pit) in Kölnischer Park in Berlin housed several generations of brown bears over a period of some eighty years. Since September 2017, the former compound for the armorial animals of Berlin incarnate has been a venue for site-specific art. The publication Traces—Architectures—Projections documents the sensitive transformation of the Bärenzwinger, whose contemporary exhibition program examines the particular historical and architectural features of the location from an artistic perspective and opens it up to urban, cultural visions and contemporary discourse.
