It is the very first MBE-station in Europe and, as part of the Biennale, will be set up in the centre of Munich’s inner-city. MBE is an abbreviation of “Maximum Broad Effect” and stands for multiple adaptable handling procedures; it will serve a wide variety of means of transport for future urban traffic. A completely unique innovation that brings with it great expectations. But before implementation, there will be opening ceremonies across several days – staged by Novoflot from Berlin! Under the banner of “The Gates are (nearly) open”, Novoflot and composer Du Yun invite all city residents and international guests to a first glimpse of the station operated by MBE technology to demonstrate the music-controlled power supply, open up the “Feel well and easily moved” areas of the station for the first time and present several protagonists from the management team of this latest of Munich’s attractions.
