March 2020, date of the first shutdown in Germany.

Back from New York all travel opportunities were cancelt.

I start conversations via Skype or Zoom with friends and colleagues around the world. With some I have been out of touch for decades. Yet, while the world is on hold, we sit across from each other - familiar, as if we were in the next room. We have similar questions: How did the pandemic change our lives and the urban life around the globe? How do we prepare for a restart?

I also ask them to take recordings, in New York, L-A., Amman, Tel Aviv, Ankara, Bangkok and Dessau.
