Field of Sensibilities is a tour for the senses, offering histories, imaginations, and mythologies throughout the community gardens of the Tempelhofer Feld. Inspired by the vast histories & liveliness of Tempelhofer Feld, WHO(se)? offers an opportunity to embrace and creatively perform the ever-shifting collective ownership and blurred territoriality of this space.

This tour is an invitation to cultivate trust in the body’s wisdom and practice gathering information through embodied presence. We are inspired by the diverse collage of flavors and landscapes coexisting in this space. The tour will draw from experiential somatic and deep ecology practices. Expect to be guided through a sensory exploration, transforming all into active shapers of shared time and space. Bring an edible offering of finger food and we will end collaboratively co-creating an improvised meal.
