The Universal Sea opened the first Berlin Water Festival running from 19th-23rd March 2018 at Betahaus Berlin, a co-working space located in Kreuzberg. We were invited by the like-minded festival organizer, the fundraising and green online platform Plan A to celebrate the WORLD WATER DAY.
“Can Art be a Catalyst for Change?” was the title of the panel, the reply was given by sustainable product designer Daria Wartalska, photographer Mona Lüders, and photo-video-installation artist Corinna Rosteck.
The talk started with artist Corinna Rosteck. To her, the purity of water is the essence of life, she inspired the audience by telling how important it is to preserve such an important natural resource. In addition, Rosteck explained that it is essential as an artist to step out of the creative circle, located usually in big cities, and reach inhabitants of smaller towns or villages in order to get full-power actions from every citizen of the world.
