Lebensreform
Germany, And Other Central European Countries
German Lebensreform (life reform) around 1890 till ? 1925 in Germany and Switzerland (even Belgium i just learned) a multitude moovement there was a lot of emphasis on the body, nakedness in the woods, small artists communities in the mountains, but also things which influenced the nazi moovement on hygeene and the culture of the body. But in genertal very alternative and experimental. Not so much have been written about it outside Germany
Earth reform, sexual, social and educational issues were also a part, as well as a new spirituality, and new ways of living.

A lot of present day ecological and green thinking originates from some of these currents and moovements.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
