Every urban space is categorised ideologically. But are its inhabitants aware of this relationship between themselves and public spaces? What differences in access to the city do different people experience on the basis of their gender, background and class? Urban planning and architecture shape microcomponents that regulate access and influence people’s behaviour. These ›agents‹ materialise in the form of objects and installations. In our audiowalk, we guide listeners through Bochum city centre in order to be able to observe the relationships between space, design and social interaction for themselves.*

* On Tuesdays and Fridays, the Audiowalk is not recommended until 4 pm because of the weekly market on Dr.-Ruer-Platz.

The starting point at the main station will only be marked with an advertising pillar from 19 August. Please orientate yourself on the starting point indicated here.
