Walk & Watch – Go & See

Project Seminar & Excursions
Winter 2023/2024

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 Winter 2023/2024, the walks are part of our ongoing explorations of the (IN)VISIBLE CITY, with a special focus on MO(NU)MENTS (see the related lecture-seminar and seminar-colloquium), and in this framework we will also offer additional special walks addressing art and monuments in public space (DEMOKRATIE:DENK MAL:DEMOKRATIE – Dialogische Spaziergänge zur Kunst).

For a more detailed general text pls. see the extended project description in German.
