URBAN LANDSCAPES

How do we see our own city and how is it perceived by tourists? What are the most important places for us as natives, that we particularly love and without which we couldn't imagine our city? But where do tourists want to shoot their photos proving "I was here"? What do the sights of our city really mean for us, which are listed as “The 100 places you must see”, and which we almost never notice in daily life?

In our workshop, we deal with depictions of cities (as consumer goods) and critically discuss the touristic gaze. We talk about places in our city and how we see and experience them. Then together we build our transcultural, giant city map of cardboard. This hybrid urban landscape grows larger with every workshop and every group of participants. Using cardboard, adhesive tapes, scissors, cutters and rulers and also flashlights and various light elements, the city architecture becomes vivid and dazzling. The meandering city silhouette forms into three rooms and serves as a background for the interactive game Klangstraße.
