The Reflecting Point Karlsauge is situated on a small rising in a clearing of the landscape park, Karlsaue. It is a place of encounter and contemplation for documenta fifteen. The peace and nature, the wood, and the conscious guidance of the viewer’s gaze, enforce a deeper percep- tion and openness: spherically connecting the wide skies, planet earth and time, inwards with its opening effect on people who discover the Karlauge whether just passing or consciously visiting.
