Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 394095358X, Hardcover)

The garden of Villa Schoningen in Potsdam experienced three hot wars (1870-71, 1914-18, and 1939-45) and one long, cold one (1945-1989), until the fall of the Berlin Wall and eastern European communism. Now restored by two wealthy patrons, it serves as a magical world combining horror and beauty, near the highly symbolic Glienicker Bridge where the East and West exchanged captured spies. This lush volume documents the remarkable collection of contemporary sculpture that now inhabits the garden, making myriad statements about history and the present day. Fantastic photography brings the reader into both the flora and the artwork in this phoenix-like location, and playful texts set the scene. Includes capsule bios of artists represented in the garden, including Jonathan Meese, Chris Ofili, Tal R, Thomas Schutte.
