Over a quarter of Munich’s urban population is under the age of 27. Many young adults, however, do not feel sufficiently represented in the city. Nightowls-Munich shifts the focus to the often-invisible world of this generation. Stephanie Maier accompanies eight young protagonists to their personal open spaces at night and reflects on the relationship between social space, architecture and the body. Besides a video portrait in essay form, a city map of nocturnal open spaces is created in which the protagonists can be seen in augmented reality. The website nightowls-munich.com has been developed for this purpose. It provides background information and gives an unusual perspective on the city and on the experiences of an often-overlooked section of the population.
