kunstprojekte_riem invites you to attend the presentation of re:site projects, a media art project devised for Munich's Messestadt by Felix S. Huber and Florian Wüst in association with Daniel Burckhardt. Physical and social change is taking place at an extraordinarily rapid pace in Messestadt. The artists wish to document these developments and offer residents opportunities to relate more closely to the new suburb.

Re:site projects combines live video images of Messestadt with movie clips and texts generated interactively on the internet. The real-time video images are recorded at two clearly marked public sites, the first at the north-west exit of the U-Bahn station Messestadt West, the second between the Grünwerkstatt and the Quax youth centre on Helsinki-Promenade. Clips from famous movies are mixed with pre-recorded video sequences of workshops conducted with young Messestadt residents. These images can be viewed on monitors installed in the streets of the suburb, on two screens at Messestadt West U-Bahn station and on the internet at
