Walk & Watch – Go & See

Project Seminar & Excursions
Summer 2020

Due to the Covid-19 measures for the time being no regular courses and events based on RL-attendance are being offered.
However, there will be digital courses instead – and thus we will probably also look for alternative options for digital walks to become part of our KRISENSTAB project… so we decided meanwhile for an alternative format with SURFCLUBS within the framework of our digital LABs.

Further information about the digital courses (and enrollment) is offered via QIS-LSF.

More information on courses, exams etc. at the Institute for Art Education can be found on the institute's homepage; for more general and detailed information see the Corona-Info-pages provided by Goethe-University.

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 2020, the walks are related to the project seminar KRISENSTAB.
