The second parkour of the research–Parkour Sequoiadendron–is a continuation in both–narrative and plot. Which witness or message in a bottle of history have been overlooked? With Dr. Lutz Krüger, active member of the association Projekt Mammutbaum e.V. and editor of the publication Die Giganten des Königs, Historische Mammutbäume in Württemberg.

The Atelier Ameisenberg (Oana Paula Vainer/ Michl Schmidt) develop models that are to a large extent based on speculations. The starting point of their collaborative research is the historical context in the area of Stuttgart Uhlandshöhe, the former Ameisenberg. The aim is to discover and illustrate the supposedly invisible, the unseen or overlooked, the blind spots and to test methods of visualization. The basis of the artistic process is a dialogue between the artists in which themes are negotiated in order to move from one to the other, from the hundredth to the thousandth and possibly back again.During the festival the Atelier Ameisenberg invites to a parcour with three stations at the Ameisenberg, which will be accompanied by the artists and invited experts.

Parkour Sequoiadendron is part of the series Muntele Furnica:

The parkour starts at the Atelier Ameisenberg and leads from there towards Villa Hauff (Werkstatthaus). The destination is the former wine cellar there. This was presumably the starting point of a bunker excavation under the building, when the house served the Waffen-SS as a so-called supplementary office in the years 1939-1945. Atelier Ameisenberg will set up the spatial installation White Paper Archive/WPA there during the festival.
