The project "Tatort Kulturlandschaft - EMIL & The Detectives" (EMIL: Edutainment & Military Landscapes) thematizes the role of military locations in the coastal cultural landscape of the Baltic Sea using the example of the city of Kiel in the years 1914 - 1920. The Baltic Sea becomes a connecting and dividing element of all neighboring European countries. Trade, crises and conflicts are reflected in the cityscape: remembrance and new starts.
With the pilot project, a model for the participative research, development and mediation of urban cultural landscape will be tested with/for children and adolescents as well as their parents and grandparents by means of transmedia storytelling . Here, a complex world around the street is created, from which different stories are spread on several media. According to the concept, the stories are each individually understandable.
In cooperation with students of the KIeler Gelehrtenschule, events from the years 1914-1920 are researched using the example of the street "Adalbertstraße“ (port quarter) and incorporated into a concept for transmedia storytelling. Real, virtual, imaginative and fictional spaces become the scene for thrilling stories. Everyday stories and human destinies are effectively brought to bear in the cityscape, as are historical events (the end of the First World War, the sailors' uprising, the founding of the republic, the Kapp Putsch) and historically significant buildings.
