Das über Pflanzen ist eins mit ihnen . Lois Weinberger . 1997

Railway track, planting with indigenous plants and neophytes, length 100m.
'Lois Weinberger made use of the open-air area of the Kulturbahnhof Kassel by sowing neophytes among indigenous plants. This type of vegetation grows rapidly, spreads across large sweeps of land, and crowds out native species. "The way a society deals with its plants tells us a lot about itself", says Weinberger. The struggle instigated by the artist is a metaphor of migration problems facing us today.
