The MuseumsQuartier invited the artist Anita Fuchs to explore a 250 m² lawn on the forecourt of the site. Since March 2023, the area has been the "experimental field1" that Anita Fuchs has been artistically exploring and developing over a period of two years: Soil samples were taken to identify suitable seeds and compiled according to the given conditions. At the beginning of April, the previous turf was removed, the soil prepared and the seed mixture sown.
In the meantime, the "Versuchsfeld 1" has become a biodiverse wild plant area that also provides a home for many insects.
In order to find out and understand what is now growing there, Anita Fuchs invited the entomologist Dominique Zimmermann and the biologist Philipp Sengl to talk about the new insects and plants in the urban space in front of the MuseumsQuartier in a "meadow talk".
