#MakeUsVisible x denkFEmale

More than 90% of the statues in Munich portray men. However, a good half of the people in our society do not identify as male. Why is gender diversity still missing in our public space?

The #MakeUsVisible x denkFEmale event uses Augmented Reality (AR) to juxtapose digital monuments of women and non-binary people with the physical male sculptures of the city.

From October 1, 2022, visitors to the free exhibition can make 31 AR monuments visible with their smartphones via a web browser and thus create a new balance in the sculpture landscape themselves. Viewers can find the pairings of sculptures or AR Monument locations online on an interactive map of Munich and via signs with QR codes next to the physical statues.

The project is organized and curated by XRE (Extended Reality Ensemble, New York) and its partner denkFEmale (Munich).
