The area surrounding the former uniform distribution centre in Munich is steeped in history. The local street names are a reminder of its past military significance until today. Andreas Neumeister explores the history, present and future of the former Munich barrack quarter in a montage of historical quotations and language particles of the modern media world. »Infanten« is the impressive example of a literature that has its place well beyond the confines of a book. Architecture and urban space are treated not just as subjects, they are a medium in their own right.
»Infanten« was published on occasion of the construction of a new university building designed by Peter Ottmann, located within the architectural ensemble of the former uniform distribution centre in Munich.
