Gerhard Lang with Marching Band phon-O-rama: Der Mobile Zebrastreifen

26. September 2020  @ 12:00 16:00 CEST

How can pedes­tri­ans cross a street legal­ly where it makes sense for them to do so and not accord­ing to traf­fic plan­ners’ pref­er­ence? Thanks to Ger­hard Lang’s Mobile Zebra Cross­ing, a pro­ces­sion of peo­ple will parade through the streets near Tem­pel­hof Air­port, chang­ing sides of the road all over fol­low­ing gen­er­al traf­fic reg­u­la­tions. The pro­ces­sion, first orga­nized in 1993 in Kassel’s city cen­ter, hon­ors Lang’s friend, col­lab­o­ra­tor, and for­mer pro­fes­sor, Lucius Bur­ck­hardt (1925–2003), the founder of »Strol­lol­o­gy« at the Gesamthochschule Kas­sel. Bur­ck­hardt for­mu­lat­ed his crit­i­cism of the pre­vail­ing auto­mo­bile-ori­ent­ed plan­ning prac­tice from the per­spec­tive of the pedestrian.
