11:30 – 14:00 Field exercise: In groups we will head out to explore different urban settings in Munich including specific landmarks with their own peculiarities such as:

  • The Eisbach mediates between local tradition and global culture such as ‘urban surfing’,
  • Bavarian culture can be found at the Viktualien market or the world famous Hofbräuhaus.
  • The English Garden and river Isar as recreational places in the inner city with places known only to the locals.

As aids in exploring these urban spaces workshop participants will be provided with a variety of analog and digital tools to choose from, such as mobile phones, video/photo camera, audio recording device, paper maps and a notebook in order to track the group’s navigation behavior, emotions and impressions in exploration the identity of Munich.

Information on the presentation format

All presentations will be in a ‘Pecha Kucha’ format.

See here for some background info and examples: pecha-kucha.org

We will limit this to 15 slides of 20 seconds each, which comes to exactly 5 minutes per presentation. The idea behind this kind of format is to keep the presentation crisp and engaging.

To ease the process we have created a power point presentation_template, in which a slide automatically switches after 20 seconds. The template has a timer indicating to the audience how much time is left.

Each presentation should contain:

  • Information about your background (e.g., where are you coming from and on what topic are you working/are interested in)
  • What is your interest in ExS 2.0 and how this relates to your topic
  • What experiences do you expect from the city in the 2.0 era?
  • Presentation of your position paper
