WASTE, SPORT and HABIT come together for The Fallow Games. Wasteland Twinning Network Berlin in collaboration with Gabrielle de Vietri host a day of urban sporting and appropriation of the city’s wastelands on the Köpi-Brache. Conducted parallel to Wasteland Rounders on The Island Wasteland, Nottingham.
Recreation Ground explored the functions, values and temporalities of The Island - the large 'wasteland' behind One Thoresby Street. Once home to Boots pharmaceutical factories, railways, gas works and much more besides, the site has (seemingly) lain dormant for over twenty years: a stubbornly stagnant scar at the heart of the post-industrial city. A wasteland.
