A five-episode documentary series

La Fondation Cartier rend hommage à Lothar Baumgarten.

Lothar Baumgarten nous a quitté. En 1994, il crée «Theatrum Botanicum», le jardin de la Fondation Cartier qui entoure le bâtiment de Jean Nouvel inauguré la même année. Son intervention concerne à la fois l’architecture et la flore du jardin. Œuvre pionnière d’une grande complexité et en devenir permanent, «Theatrum Botanicum» constitue une véritable expérience pour le visiteur et a marqué l’histoire de la Fondation Cartier ainsi que le paysage parisien.

Artiste conceptuel, Lothar Baumgarten a toujours allié dans son travail nature, langage, exploration, et expérience de différentes cultures : autour de ces sujets, il a bâti une poétique originale et sensible, qui rend son oeuvre unique. Ses intérêts multiples ont souvent croisé la programmation de la Fondation Cartier, depuis toujours attentive aux questions liées à la nature, l’environnement et les populations vivant au cœur de la forêt.
