Gothenburg Underground Tour (2018)

12-22 April 2018
Gothenburg, Sweden

Gothenburg Underground Tour is an audio-visual guide to four sites in Gothenburg with a hidden underground. As a tour participant you are invited to go to any or all of these sites in the order you choose. There you will find an augmented reality ‘marker’, which you can activate on a smartphone using the AR camera link. Pointing the phone’s cameraview at the marker shows the augmented reality, and allows access to the corresponding audio guide.
The audio guides centre the listener’s embodied experience of the place, asking them questions, telling of hidden histories, and spreading rumours.

Audio tracks for each location are available as downloadable MP3s on the project website
