Parks are a trial of the people to bring the nature to the city. They enable to escape hectic city life and offer a pause at the fast, no zero culture. This is where the dogs are released from the lease and the children are allowed out of their wagon and not forced to stick to their mothers, where the homeless can be left alone, after being kicked out from the shopping centre. A place for joggers and tai chi practitioners. For freezbee or football, with a newspaper or a book on a bench, or grilling with friends. Parks are peaceful island of earth, grass, trees and flowers at the cemented urban landscape. People go to parks in order to get a rest…
I come from Israel a land with few very short phases of peace and quiet. From Tel Aviv-Yaffo a city with a vast beach but only one park and few small gardens.
Tents which are usually in context of parks and nature became the main symbol for the protests in Tel Aviv 2011.
iinTENTion is a solidarity project with the protestors in Israel and the middle east.
Rosh ha Shana, the Jewish New Year eve on 29th of September is coming soon. One of the main customs in this holiday is sending greeting cards to friends and family. Since the communication revolution (telephone, cellular, email skype, face book) this custom is neglected.
We believe that many of the Israelis that live in Berlin, left Israel for the same reasons that cause the uprising; dissatisfaction from the government and the Israeli politics.
In light of the social protests, the last terror attacks in Israel and the escalating relations with Egypt. We will place tent at the Volkspark Hasenheide and use it as a greeting postcard. We invite people to join us with their picnic, and apply their own greetings and messages to the protestors in Israel on the tent.
