According to an ancient legend, the famed Hanging Gardens of Babylon – one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – were once built to heal the sorrow of a queen longing for the green valleys of her home. Re-envisioning Mesopotamian mythology in the light of current migration movements, The Hanging Gardens of Oberlandstraße provide a collective platform to reflect on the notion of home through a shared experience.

The Hanging Gardens of Oberlandstraße consists of a durational exhibition featuring works by Najib Abidi, Yalda Afsah, Hiba Alansari, Fadi Alassaf, Mouneer Al Shaarani, Mounira Al Solh, Andrea Büttner, Alaa Hassan, Margarita Jimeno, Ziad KalthoumNina Katchadourian, Maysoun Omar, Annelein Pompe, Yaser Safi, Studio for Propositional Cinema, Shared Studios, and Wael Toubaji

During these days screenings, performances, and concerts by international artists, performers and musicians will animate the campus, bringing a new feeling of home to the Atelier Gardens.
