The first art project for documenta 12 was launched in an apprentice workshop in Kassel: the social sculpture, Would you like to participate in an artistic experience? by the Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum. A total of twenty steel objects will now be migrating through different households and meeting points on three continents, through towns and cities such as Kassel, Ljubljana, Mexico City or Dakar. They will be altered by their temporary owners, and will themselves change. They are "unreasonable, fitting-in nowhere so they pose a challenge", as Roger M. Buergel commented. The documentation of this journey will be presented in June 2007, for documenta 12.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
