“There are no innocent park sites,” concludes garden monument conservator Claus Lange. The Düsseldorf Nordpark, created in 1937, was laid out for a National Socialist propaganda display. It exemplifies fascist visions, overwriting, rearrangements, and misunderstandings: stemming from horticulture politics and urban planning.

Here, Düsseldorf choreographers Kathrin Spaniol and Morgan Nardi invite their audience for a walk through history, the present, and the future: passing the sculptures from the 1930s, the flower installations of the Sixties. Equipped with headphones and smartphones, we will be entering the park, listening to stories and history while watching virtual realities. Irritations will flare up throughout the park, time and again, reflections from the past. So, a view will be cleared for the landscape, the staged spaces, and coincidence.
