I want to ride your bicycle

I want to ride your bicycle is an invitation for tourists to take part in the Critical Mass Stuttgart, riding homemade bicycles such as 'camel-bikes', 'tall-bikes' or 'swing-bikes'. These unique bicycles appear as exotic creatures, much like those who mount them, strangers in a foreign city, slipping into the role of an activist, demonstrating solidarity with the political landscape they are visiting.
StadtHerzenThe heart of the city

The heart of the city

A doorbell-tour of fragmented narratives that are shared over the intercoms of residential properties in the city center. Collect anecdotes, wishes, opinions and admissions from unseen authors, as residents take the opportunity to say what they never dared or never had the opportunity to say. The heart of the city presents an alternative image of the city center, tucked away behind and above the facades of commerce, bureaucracy and tourism, a residential district that is often overseen. Private lives in public spaces.
Die Reise des MC o.T.The journey of the MC o.T.

The journey of the MC o.T.

A biographical journey that follows the story of the MC o.T., a collective of eight artists in Stuttgart who present themselves in galleries and art institutions as a motorbike club. Participants of this tour will ride as passengers on a motorbike. So collect your club jackets and roar through the traffic, as a temporary member of this unusual club. A collision of art and motorbikes.
Blaurohr WegBlue pipe way

Blue pipe way

The Blue Pipe Way is a walking-parcour along the blue pipe of a temporary groundwater management system, installed as part of the building project ‘Stuttgart21’. The name of the tour refers to the popular panoramic ‘Blue Way’ in the south of Stuttgart and traditional colour coding systems used to guide walkers through the landscape. Rather than offer idyllic views over the city, the Blue Pipe Way offers a view into the controversy surrounding the transport and real estate project Stuttgart21, something that has politicised and divided the city of Stuttgart for a number of years.
The Eye WalkThe Eye Walk

The Eye Walk

A spectator and performer go for a walk. The spectator closes their eyes and the performer guides them through the city. During their walk, the performer selects locations and focal points for a series of ‚snapshots’. Aiming the spectator’s body the performer asks the spectator to „open“ their eyes. The opening time of the eyes corresponds to the opening of a camera shutter: long enough for the picture to be taken. The Eye Walk creates a movie out of reality, composed as a spontaneous collaboration between the site, the moment and the guide.
Stuttgart und seine HörwürdigkeitenSitehearing in Stuttgart

Sitehearing in Stuttgart

Sitehearing in Stuttgart provides an opportunity to discover the sounds of the city. Eight locations of acoustic interest have been selected, inviting tourists and local residents to experience a parcour of discovery, collecting sonic impressions, while documenting this experience in the form of a manuscript.
Postcard WalksPostcard Walks

Postcard Walks

A selection of old postcards is bought at the flea market, addressed to people who once lived in Stuttgart. These addresses are then used to create a route through the city, connecting one postal address to the next and transforming seemingly everyday buildings into a destination with a history and a memory.
Wish you were hereWish you were here

Wish you were here

Greetings from Anywhere: Wish You Were Here invites people in Stuttgart to write postcards – but not from Stuttgart. Wish You Were Here is an exercise in the art of not being there. It offers the imagination of an ideal holiday instead of the futility of the tourist's attempt to escape: instant memories for everybody!
