Ice Houses are the refrigerators of the past and the silent witnesses of climate change. There are many located in various landscapes across Germany and Europe. They are forgotten monuments of historical and cultural significance. “7 Walks in the Woods” is an exhibition which brings artists and cultural heritage together via a potential ice house in the Rabenholz Forest, Struxdorf in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It aim is to refresh people's memories of a particular ice house by using artistic research methods to give the heritage a contemporary voice.
