Legenda conceives and organizes debates, exhibitions, publications, workshops, excursions and study programmes. The society, whose members are geographers, artists and curators, follows a multi-disciplinary understanding of exploration, comprising both conventional approaches to research and experimental forms of landscape interpretation. Central place of work, reflection and presentation is the newly created Situation Room in the Marxloh area of Duisburg.
