In video works, Nikolai Gümbel explores the urban planning dimension of the large-scale Freiham project. Children and young people try out their own film approaches in workshops.

In his video work “Layers that we see”, Nikolai Gümbel explores the urban planning dimension of the large-scale Freiham project and its structural conditions. The film is based on the archaeological excavations that took place in Freiham prior to construction work and prove that the area around Freiham has been inhabited for around 6,000 years. In dealing with this historical dimension, a look at present and future life in the newly designed district is to be taken.

Three video sections are being created in parallel with the progress of the construction project. The first section, “Excavation and Model”, will be presented in the exhibition “Global Munich. In Perspective” on Friday, June 21st from 6 pm in the Habibi Kiosk of the Munich Kammerspiele.

Workshops : In cooperation with the Freiham Education Campus, the workshops “Freiham Site” will be held from 19 to 22 August, in which children and young people can try out their own film approaches.

 

Nikolai Gümbel, born in 1995, lives and works in Munich.
