After the success of “Shabbyshabby Apartments”, the Kam- merspiele will once more leave the theatre space for a project in summer 2018. A site-specific walk through selected districts in Munich is being planned. The format of “X apartments”, created by Matthias Lilienthal, which has been performed with great success in cities around the world, is going through an exhaustive modernisation phase. For five days, the audi- ence will be guided through the world of digital natives and the sharing economy. Airbnb, the company founded in 2008 in California’s Silicon Valley that provides a community marketplace for the booking and rental of accommodation, is exemplary of the paradoxes of this new business model. In 24 apartments, which will be acquired via this app and other rental portals, artists like Susanne Kennedy, Alexander Giesche, Billinger & Schulz, Britta Thie, Damian Rebgetz and Helene Hegemann, all of whose understanding of art X has largely been shaped by the conditions of the digital age, will develop short works with a playing time of 10 minutes. Eight of these performances, theatre pieces and installations will be summarised in a route; three different routes will be offered to the public who will visit them in groups of two, mainly on foot. In this way, visitors will become tourists, modern rental nomads, collectors and intermediaries of urban and virtual experience spaces in their own city.
