The Walk through the city centre of Bremen led to two points of reference: The Rembertikreisel, a roundabout in the southeast and a road and railway overpass on the western edge of the city centre – two strange non-places in a densely populated city. Questions that guided us on the way were- what will be there to see and to hear? And what not? What could be there (instead)?

At the end of the workshop, the Presentation brought together all the recordings, references, findings (and their processing) in the Belle Etage of the spedition. The resulting outcomes are documented here in various formats of text, video, audio, drawing, (geo) data, objet trouvé.

The Context sums up quotes and references that have played a role in dealing with the terrain and surroundings of the walk as well as the themes of the workshop. Short texts describe the idea of the workshop, the idea behind the route of dir_name and the history of one of the 'non-places' visited.
