Walk & Watch – Go & See

Project Seminar & Excursions

Walking and watching, cruising and seeing, navigating and charting, collecting and sorting, visualizing and communicating: The workshop aims to investigate — in theory as well as in practice — techniques, strategies and modes of exploring the (in)visible city. Tracing, tracking, and leaving marks will be a core activity.

Starting point and basic working format are city walks, hereby consciously drawing back to a cultural practice used by many artists and artist's collectives from early modernity onwards.

In Summer 2012, the walks are part of the project seminar "Gehen & Sehen: Ins Grüne. Ein Stadtspaziergang" (see ibid).
