In the northern latitudes the Banyan Tree is known as "Ficus" in the flowerpot, in the tropics, he is revered, loved and feared.

Since 2004, the Berlin based media artist Alfred Banze gathered artworks in many countries, all inspired by the Banyan tree, by the idea of combining tradition and modernity, to a global experiment in art and cultural practice.

The touring exhibition shows both, the artworks and their interpretations - Remixes - developed in art workshops by children and young people from around the world.
