Der Bärenzwinger – Schandfleck in Berlins Mitte
von Karin Hutter

Sie lebt nicht irgendwo auf dem Balkan, sondern in Berlins schicker Mitte. Die Braunbärin, gefangen gehalten als Wappentier im Bärenzwinger, gleich neben dem Märkischen Museum. Offiziell ist sie die letzte „amtierenden Berliner Stadtbärin“.

Dieser Bärenzwinger wurde im Jahre 1939 eröffnet. Seitdem hausten hier insgesamt zwölf erwachsene Tiere, die die unvorstellbare Zahl von 55 Jungen in diese enge Welt setzten. Die meisten Jungbären wurden an Zoos und Zirkusse im In- und Ausland verschenkt, verschickt, verschachert.

Nur sie ist übriggeblieben, Schnute, inzwischen 33 Jahre alt. Ihre Tochter Maxi, die sie mit dem eigenen Bruder zeugte und 1986 im Zwinger zur Welt brachte, starb vor kurzem. Die Obduktion ergab schwere inneren Blutungen, Versagen von Leber und Niere. Zudem litt sie an Arthrose, hatte eine verformte Wirbelsäule und Bandscheibenschäden. Resultat des lebenslangen Rundlaufs auf Beton. Auch bei Schnute gibt es Anzeichen von Arthrose und den typischen Stereotypien von Bären in Gefangenschaft.

Eine Befragung von etwa hundert als tierfreundlich bekannten Berlinern ergab: Die meisten hielten es nicht für möglich, dass in ihrer Mitte heute noch Bären in einem Zwinger gehalten werden; sie waren völlig ahnungslos und hatten nie etwas davon gehört. Manche erinnerten sich, etwas darüber gelesen zu haben und ein paar kannten den Bärenzwinger von früher und waren entsetzt, dass dort immer noch Tiere leben – in einer Zeit, da der Tierschutz längst Verfassungsrang hat und derlei mittelalterliche Taditionen der Vergangenheit angehören sollten.

Ohne Zweifel ist diese Haltung nicht artgerecht. Die Gefangenschaftshaltung von Braunbären kann niemals artgerecht sein. Artgerecht ist nur die Freiheit. Aber man kann Zoo-, Zirkus- und Zwingerbären aus miserabler Haltung ein besseres Leben ermöglichen. Ein Leben, in dem sie ihr zwanghaftes Verhalten verlernen und ihre arttypischen Bedürfnisse wieder entdecken und befriedigen können: die Umwelt mit allen Sinnen erleben, Natur riechen und schmecken, auf Futtersuche gehen, nach Lust und Laune baden und schwimmern, Kontakt mit Artgenossen aufnehmen, sich – auch vor Menschen – verstecken, Winterruhe halten. Dass dies keine Utopie sein muss, beweisen Bärenparks oder Bärenschutzzentren, die Tiere aus schlechter Haltung aufnehmen und ihnen ein neues Zuhause bieten.

Auf Initiative von Tierschützern haben Bärenauffangstationen seit Jahren immer wieder ihr Angebot, die Berliner Bärinnen aufzunehmen, erneuert. Dem Bezirk Mitte würden keine Kosten entstehen. Im Gegenteil, er würde zehntausende Euro Steuergelder einsparen. Nach einer Antwort auf eine Anfrage der Grünen im Berliner Abgeordnetenhaus mussten nämlich Jahr für Jahr 90.000 Euro für den Zwingerunterhalt aufgewendet werden. Doch stets wurde dieses Angebot von den politisch Verantwortlichen abgelehnt. Schließlich sollte eine Expertenkommission prüfen, ob die Tiere überhaupt noch transportfähig seien. Die Antwort fiel nicht eindeutig aus – zunächst „nein“, dann eher „ja“ – oder besser „vielleicht“ …

Jetzt, wo nur noch Schnute am Leben ist, machte die grüne Fraktion in Berlin-Mitte einen letzten Vorstoß, die Bärin „Schnute“ aus dem Zwinger zu befreien. Er wurde von SPD und CDU mehrheitlich abgelehnt. Begründung: Einen alten Baum verpflanzt man nicht.
Inzwischen verspricht der Bezirk seinen Kritikern, den Zwinger für die alte Bärin ein wenig wohnlicher zu gestalten. Geld ist freilich dafür nicht vorhanden …

THE DESTINY OF SCHNUTE——–
Schnute, a 33 year old brown bear girl lives in the middle of Berlin. Her "home" is a historic bear pit–a relict from the past. How come a modern city like Berlin keeps a animal in a cement pit, surrounded by a deep moat and a wall studded with giant iron spikes. The answer is tradition…..The bear is the heraldic animal of Berlin, so this is the reason why Schnute is forced to live in miserable conditions. Most of the time she is locked up in tiny indoor enclosures—–the daily outdoor time is about 10 hours…the outdoor area is tiny, a few steps on each side. Schnute is living this way for over 20 years now. The monotony and narrowness have made her mentally ill. It is not possible to overlook her behavioral problems. Such housing conditions for a great, wonderful animal like a bear are NOT to tolerate. Are there any alternatives?—–Yes —–Bear rescue centers have already offered help for Schnute and offered a place for her in a bear sanctuary where she could live for the very first in a natural habitat. The PPL of Berlin-Mitte refuses all plans of moving her.The government is planning a remodelling of the bear kennel, but a serious reconstruction is not possible, because the whole pit is under a preservation order. Holding on this disturbing tradition to keep a animal just like a prestige objekt is disgusting. We want to see Schnute in a bear sanctuary where she could live in dignity….give her a chance to live like a bear…not only beeing the heraldic animal of a city! We have a online event with three petitions—-please sign and share….we need to put more pressure on the ppl. We want " Freedom for Schnute"

la raison pour laquel il est important de signer les 3 pettions … merci de vos signatures et prtg on a besoin au moins de 25 000 signatures , .. merci pour schnute .
"""".maxi est mort l´annee derniere .. la pa se bat depuis longtemps pour retire a l´epoque les 2 ours .. qui sont places en plein milieu de berlin ce n´est pas un zoo .. ils avait que l´espace que vous voyer pour vivre .. c´est toujours actuel … maintenat schnute est seul .. íl a une place de reserve dans une foret .. mais la ville ne veut rien savoir Faites envoyer Schnute dans la forêt d'ours Müritz! Des ours n'appartiennent pas dans une prison en béton! J'étais horrifié, quand j'apprenais que la réunion d'arrondissement a refusé le milieu de Berlin le transfère dans la forêt d'ours Müritz le 20.02.2014. La on se demande , pourtant, pourquoi on tourmente plus loin cet animal ? Schnute, le dernière survivant dans la prison d'ours berlinoise à un droit sur la position adaptée dans la forêt d'ours Müritz, où l´association "QUATRE PATTES" ils avait organisées une place pour lui par l'organisation de protection des animaux et toujours valable à l'avenir.""""

Tacit Futures @ Volksbühne
Oct 27 @ 20:00 – Oct 29 @ 20:00

TACIT FUTURES
Towards the Democratic Control of Movement
Workshops, Talks, Performances + Cooking
http://berlinergazette.de/tacit-futures

Borders and infrastructure enable or disable the movement of humans and goods, data and money. Hence both are sites at which the future of human togetherness is shaped – fostering equality or aggravating inequality. So, who is actually taking decisions about the control of movement and thus about the future of society? Can the futures that are hidden at these sites – can these tacit futures become a democratic project?

BG (Berliner Gazette) and Volksbühne at Rosa Luxemburg Platz invite activists, researchers, coders and journalists to search for answers. The BG Annual Conference, this year entitled TACIT FUTURES, will initiate discussions and collaborative processes tackling the democratic control of movement.

PUBLIC TALKS with Konrad Becker, Jennifer Kamau, Brian Massumi, Guillaume Paoli, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Marcus Staiger, and many more.

WORKSHOPS with artists, researchers, activists and programmers from more than twenty countries on issues such as: “Industries of prediction and margins of freedom”, “The politics of borders and money moves”, “Traces of movement and the question of rights”, “Care culture, drone war and mass mobility” and “Co-working, platform activism and refugees”.

A limited number of participants can register. Deadline: October 4.

IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP!!!!! consciousness / awareness @ WORLDWIDE / UNIVERSAL
Dec 31 2019 @ 23:00 – Jan 1 2020 @ 02:00

IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP!!!!! consciousness / awareness

Greece, spain, france, africa, egypt, Venezuela, Ukraine, brazil, turkey ….. People go on the streets and get arrested or even murdered for fighting for their rights, fighting for freedom. People everywhere are controlled by goverments all around the World. Media controls the minds, food- aswell as pharmaindustries controls health, Banks control money, we are spied on by Apps and Internet which should be there in order to communicate privatly with Friends, and all we do is making dumb jokes about it. Even the freedom of thoughts is being eliminated by that. Millions of Animals are slaughtered every Day and we don’t give a shit. Some species don’t Even exist anymore, forests are Cut Down, air is polluted and Weather controlled. Even nowadays, every Minute people die of starvation. And still, all we care about is who wears what at fashionweek, celebrity-stories, guestlists, Partys and distraction.
We say we can’t do anything anyways, find excuses to keep our eyes closed.
How can it be, that, in times like this, where things escalate everywhere around us, we still don’t have anything better to do than post pictures of our breakfast or “selfies” from Last Nights Party where we actually spent more time taking the pictures that show how much Fun we had, than really having Fun.
I know, Life Must go on and there has always been Trouble somewhere somehow but this pure ignorance that i see is almost as scary as the enormous violence itself that is going on….

STAY OPTIMISTIC –

There is something extraordinary happening in the world

We still haven’t realized of something extraordinary that is happening.
A few months ago, I freed myself from society, I’ve released myself from attachments I had and fear that locked me to the system. And since then, I started seeing the world from a different perspective. The perspective that everything is changing and most of us have not even realized that.
Why is the world changing? In this post I’ll list the reasons that take me to believe this.

1 — No one can stand the employment model anymore.

Each one is reaching its own limit. People that work in big corporations can’t handle their jobs. The lack of purpose starts to knock the door of each one as a desperate scream coming from the heart.

People want to escape. They want to leave everything behind. Look how many people trying to become entrepreneurs, how many people going on sabbaticals, how many people depressed in their jobs, how many people in burnout.

2- The entrepreneurship model is also changing

A few years ago, with the explosion of the startups, thousands of entrepreneurs, ran to their garages to create their billion dollar ideas. The glory was to get funded by an investor. Investor’s money in hand was just like winning the World Cup.

But what happens after you get funded?
You become an employee again. You have people that are not aligned with your dream, that don’t give a damn to the purpose and everything turns into money. The financial return starts to be the main driver.

Many people are suffering with this. Brilliant startups start to fall because the model of chasing money never ends.

We need a new model of entrepreneurship.
And there is already many good people doing this.

3- The rise of collaboration

Many people have already realized that makes no sense to go alone. Many people awake to this crazy mentality of “going on your own”.

Stop, take a step back and think. Isn’t it an absurd, we, 7 billion people living in the same planet get so separated from each other? What sense does it make, you and the thousands (or millions) of people living in the same city turn your back to each other? Everytime I get myself thinking on that, I get even kind of depressed.

But fortunately, things are changing. All the movements of sharing and collaborative economy are pointing towards this direction. The rise of collaboration, sharing, helping, giving hands, getting united.

It is beautiful. It makes tears come from my eyes.

4- We are finally starting to understand what the internet is

Internet is an incredibly spectacular thing and only now, after so many years we are understanding it’s power. With internet, the world opens, the barriers fall, separation ends, union starts, collaboration explodes, help emerges.

Some nations made revolution with the internet, such as the Arab Spring. In all the world we are just starting to use better this magnificent tool.

Internet is taking down mass control. There is no more television, no more few newspapers showing the news they want us to read. You can go after whatever you want, you relate to whoever you want. You can explore whatever you want, whenever you want.

With internet, the small starts to get a voice. The anonymous become known. The world gets united. And the system may fall.

5- The fall of exaggerated consumption

For many years, we have been manipulated, stimulated to consume as maniacs. To buy everything that was launched in the market. To have the newest car, the latest iphone, the best brands, lots of clothes, lots of shoes, lots of lots, lots of everything.
But many people have already understood that it makes no sense at all. Movements such as the lowsumerism, slow life, slow food, start to show us that we have organized ourselves in the most absurd possible way.

Each time less people using cars, less people buying a lot, each time more people trading clothes, donating, buying old things, sharing goods, sharing cars, apartments, offices.

We need nothing of what they told us we needed.
And this consciousness can break any corporation that depends on the exaggerated consumption.

6- Healthy and organic eating

We were so crazy that we accepted eating any kind of garbage. It only needed to taste good in the mouth, that was ok.

We were so disconnected, that the guys started to add poison in our food and we didn’t say anything.

But then some guys started to wake up and give strength to movements of healthy eating and organic consumption.
And this is going to be huge.
Bu what does it has to be with economy and work? It has everything!

The production of food is the basis of our society. Food industry is one of the most importants of the world. If consciousness change, our eating habits also change, and consumption changes, and then the big corporations must follow these changes.
The small farmer is starting to have strength again. Also people who are planting their own food.

And that changes the whole economy.

7 — The awakening of spirituality

How many friends you have that practice yoga? What about meditation?
How many used to do it 10 years ago?
Spirituality for many years was a thing of the esoteric people. Of those weird people from mysticism.

But fortunately, this is also changing. We got to the limit of our rationality. We could see that only with the rational mind we cannot understand everything that happens here. There is something more happening and I know you want to understand.
You want to understand how things work in here. How life operates, what happens after death, what is this energy thing that people talk so much, what is quantum physics, how can thoughts become things and create our reality, what are coincidences and synchronicities, why meditation works, how is it possible to cure with the hands and what about these alternative therapies that medicine does not approve, but work?

Companies are promoting meditation to their employees. Schools teaching meditation to kids.

8 — Unschooling movements

Who created this teaching model? Who chose the classes you have to take? Who chose the lessons we learn in history classes? Why didn’t they teach us the truth about other ancient civilizations?

Why should the kids obey rules? Why should they watch everything in silence? Why should they wear uniform?

Take a test to prove that you learned?

We created a model that forms followers of the system. That prepare people to be ordinary human beings.

But fortunately there are many people working to change that. Movements like unschooling, hackschooling, homeschooling.
Maybe you have never thought of this and you are chocked with the points I’m listing here.

But all these things are happening.
Silently, people are awakening and realizing how craziness it is to live in this society.
Look at all these movements and try to thing everything is normal.

I don’t think it is.

There is something extraordinary happening.

Ambiance the 720 hour film
Dec 30 @ 23:00 – Dec 31 @ 02:00

December 31, 2020 the Swedish artist Anders Weberg end his 20 plus years relation with the moving image as a means of creative expression . After more than 300 films he puts an end with the premiere of what will be the longest film ever made. Ambiancé is 720 hours long (30 days) and will be shown in its full length on a single occasion syncronised in all the continents of the world and then destroyed.

In the piece Ambiancé space and time is intertwined into a surreal dream-like journey beyond places and is an abstract nonlinear narrative summary of the artist’s time spent with the moving image . A sort of memoir movie . (Film memoir ) . This in the visual expression that is constantly characterized the work throughout the artists career.

As a small tease until the premiere in 2020 shorter teaser/trailers will be presented at different occasions.

2014 – Short teaser which is 72 minutes long and that has the intent to convey the mood and tempo from the full piece.
2016 – The first short trailer with duration 7 hours 20 minutes.
2018 – Longer trailer with duration 72 hours.
