20 years ago, Farmer Arnold joined the seed of rye at the „Jahrtausendfeld“ (Millennium Field) – a project of the Schaubühne Lindenfels. On occasion of the anniversary he returns and met many curious citizens and also his own silhouette, in the monument MAN AND HORSES.
Back in 1999, René Reinhardt created the installation “Jahrtausendfeld” for the Expo 2000 year and developed, together with the Schaubühne Lindenfels, the participatory intervention and an ecological happening.

The chosen name remained until today and is now common parlance. Where else do you find a waste land with name and identity?
