A Concert And Sculpture Park

Our non-profit making Foundation, Peter Wilmot Thompson Stiftung, was founded in 2014 in Berlin, Germany. With the assistance of our German company, Künstler Bei Wu GmbH, we set up and developed Sculpture Park Wesenberg at Am Weissen See 3 ,17255 Wesenberg, Mecklenburg, Germany which was opened to the public in June 2016.

The inaugural exhibition included 23 large scale outdoor sculptures installed in the natural forest grounds surrounding the park, as well as a number of indoor sculptures and paintings installed in purposely built exhibition galleries, mostly by Australian artists with the aim of fostering cultural exchanges with German artists.

The highlight of these exhibits are works by the Australian sculptors Inge King and Erwin Fabian, both born in Berlin in November 1915.

For its first anniversary celebrations in 2017, exhibits of Australian Indigenous art were shown, including works from Arnhem Land and the Torres Strait Islands in Northern Australia.

The opening events 2016 and 2017 were celebrated by concerts performed by our Orchestra In Residence, Concerto Brandenburg based in Berlin.

The opening art events 2018 included


(1) a Spinifex Exhibition showing Contemporary Australian Indigenous art with a bold and colourful scheme to be curated by our long-term exhibition partner – ARTKELCH and


(2) a relaunch of the Torres Strait Islander art curated by Stéphane Jacob of ARTS D`AUSTRALIE, France, with a film produced and directed by Phil Cairney, showing art and culture of the people.

The experiences of combining art, music and nature have led us to inaugurate Music Festival Bei Wu with two large scale ‘open air’ public concerts on 30th June and 1st July 2018 performed by Concerto Brandenburg.

The Opening Events 2019 included

                 a day events on Saturday 22nd June from 2:30 pm to 7:30 pm                 private by invitation only

  a day events of curated tours to our new art exhibitions on Sunday 23rd June   from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm open to the public by prior registration
