CityLab on the move in the Wallanlagen
Made and sponsored by
In 60 contributions, which could be accessed with a hiking map and a smartphone app, the co-curators showed a subjective re-survey of the inner city park. In addition to historical, sociological and artistic contributions, the question of the relationship between private interests and public space was also central: Who determines how public spaces are used, and can they once again become a place for interaction and communication?
A striking yellow pole track, advertising pillars, objects and art installations made the walk varied and attracted all park visitors. More than 60 events in the supporting programme brought the Wallanlagen to the attention of the public in summer 2014. Numerous positive responses showed in particular that the exhibition met the need for historical identification and the focus on public space in Frankfurt.
