The app takes users in search of traces in Frankfurt. And there is a lot to be discovered: stories about Jewish football clubs in Zeilsheim, Greek fur traders in the main station district and Turkish restaurants in the East End of the city. "Invisible Places" shows where the memories of Jews coincide with the stories of the Greek, Spanish, Turkish and Italian communities, indicates the places where their everyday life was played out and explains how the city became a “city of diversity” after 1945.
Food, Love, Education, Work
Different thematic trails invite users to discover everyday stories at places that have so far been invisible and to illustrate them with new images. Via Instagram, users can upload their own photographs and stories into the app on the spot and then share them with other users.

Views from our App "Invisible Places". The Berlin agency Studio GOOD is responsable for the fresh design.
The Frankfurt "Bahnhofsviertel" (train station quarter) has always been shaped by migration. Starting very early Turkish, Arab and African shops established here. The square in front of the main station was a common meeting place for many migrants. Since a few years the place is designated for a guest workers memorial.
