The art project recorded life stories and life paths of people in Munich and their experiences with “distances”.

The term “distance” includes not only a spatial distance but also social boundaries. The reasons for leading a life characterized by distance are complex: lack of access to resources, lack of rights, foreign language skills, cultural and social affiliation.

The collective Barabern & Strawanzen brought people with different life stories and life paths together in audio walks in order to connect them with each other. You can listen to their stories through headphones.
