How do you present a sculpture? Museum experts argue - in the context of paintings of the time, in a sculpture hall? Sculptures are at their best in open spaces, for example in the sculpture garden of the Neue Nationalgalerie or the Haus am Waldsee. The garden of the Villa Liebermann is now as famous as the paintings in this garden. The Jewish Museum would be inconceivable without the garden's artistic commentary on Jewish history; the garden ensemble integrates architect Daniel Libeskind's historically charged concept and thematises individual sections.
Historical and contemporary garden art comes into its own in the context of museums and galleries, and Berlin is full of examples of this highest form of combining the creative will of nature and people.
