The Søren Kierkegaard Park, 2021

On the 14th of May 2021 the artist Albert Allgaier locked the gates of Rucka park for an indefinite period of time. For the duration of the performance the name of the park was changed to Søren-Kierkegaard-Park.

The work is based on the anecdote of the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard always returning back home on his daily walk just as his favorite park came in sight – because to his mind reality can never surpass expectation.
