Landscape architect Kamel Louafi's exhibition Kamel Louafi's Fascination and Choreography of Landscape. Orient meets Occident – So Close and Yet so Far shows projects realized by him over the last 30 years and brings them together with photographs and statements on their genesis. In this way it becomes visible, how elements from art and landscape architecture as well as from "Orient and Occident" begin to merge in his gardens. In addition to the Inachevées – Unfinished Projects in an arabesque installation, the Hanging Gardens in the center of the room depict the contrasts between designed and destroyed landscape.

At 3:30 pm the ballet performance Orient meets Occident by Marie Stelter to music by Hamza Qabbani (Oud) will take place.

The short documentary by Susanne Yacoub portrays the Algerian landscape architect who designed the garden at the Jewish Museum Berlin as a wanderer and mediator between worlds – screening 5:30 pm.
