Part of the exhibition All of the Critters by Eloïse Bonneviot and Anne de Boer.

Meeting point: Pflanzstelle Kalk, Neuerburgstraße 21-23, 51103 Cologne
Duration: approx. 2.5-3 hours.
Max. 15 people
We are happy to receive a contribution of 3-5 euros.

The path between Pflanzstelle Kalk and the NeuLand community garden in Bayenthal becomes a game course: we‘ll explore urban space and greenery as we interact with more-than-human characters developed by Anne de Boer and Eloïse Bonneviot for All of the Critters. Various game scenarios unfold along the way. In between artist Marie Donike will serve site-specific snacks and give contextual inputs.

About the game
All of the Critters is a role-playing game designed for the NeuLand Community Garden. No prior experience is required to play. Participants take on the roles of organisms that live in, visit, or otherwise interact with the garden.
Each player is given a project to complete. To complete the project, participants move through the garden in search of tokens. All collected game cards and solved tasks can be added to a virtual model of NeuLand and then activated. However, one person's ideal habitat may be quite the opposite for another.
