This website is part of Natascha Sadr Haghighian’s participation in dOCUMENTA (13).
For this project, Natascha Sadr Haghighian has constructed a footpath on a slope made of debris from World War II, parallel to the Ehrenmal, connecting Bellevue (Schöne Aussicht) and Karlsaue park. Onomatopoeic animal sounds in different languages emanate from the bushes and trees as the visitor descends to the park.
This physical trail only exists for the duration of dOCUMENTA (13) while the web-based trail that accompanies the physical one will continue to be accessible afterwards.
