  From the exhibition press release

The work WE'RE ALL WATER consists of one hundred and eighteen bottles of clear glass, filled with water, each has a label with the name of a person. A small round table with chairs will be placed in the exhibition space with a single water-filled bottle without a label; here people may write a name on a card and place it near the bottle as a conceptual addition to WE'RE ALL WATER. WE'RE ALL WATER is inspired by a concept that Yoko Ono published in 1967, for her exhibition at the Lisson Gallery in London:

"you are water / I'm water / we're all water in different containers / that's why it's so easy to meet / someday we'll evaporate together / but even after the water's gone / we'll probably point out to the containers / and say - that's me there, that one - / we're container minders"

At the entrance of the gallery is a recent work titled Pieces of Sky. The installation consists of eleven German army helmets from World War II that are suspended from the ceiling; they each contain pieces of "sky", which the public may take. Finally a new participatory installation titled h e a l will be installed in the smaller room. Large maps of Berlin will be hung on the walls; one group of maps is from 1910, the other is contemporary. People may rubber stamp the words i love you, ich liebe dich, heal on these maps. Yoko Ono's concept is that the streets and squares of the city are like the veins and blood vessels of the human body lying beneath - their traces have been destroyed by war and time. Through love, a healing process will take place. h e a l also includes Ono's sound work RISING."
