JUSTIN BENNETT  Secret Garden Malmö. Locative audiowalk in Pildammsparken. Listeners walk around the park using their own mobile phones, an app and headphones.

15:00–16:00
AXEL BERGER & JOSH VYRTZ PLUG-FAIR / Through a glass, darkly. An extended reality promenade. The audience is immersed in an internet age tale with corrupted site-specific information.

The registration for the promenade is closed.

19:00–21:00
ALONA RODEH  Night as other frontier or The Well-Being of The Nocturnal City: Night Walk. With a group of up to 30 people for approximately one hour, Rodeh leads paths into the semi-darkness of Malmö’s old northern harbor area. The tour includes a boat ride into the ocean in a quest for deeper darkness. Meeting point: close to Malmö central station, details will be given when registered. Only a few places available! Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring their warmest, darkest clothes. The registration for the night walk is closed.
