Walking from Scores is a collection of about 100 non site-specific protocols, instructions, textual scores and graphics focused on walking, listening and sound production in urban space. The collection explores the relationship between art and everyday life, the dynamics of sound and listening in various environments, and the (porous) boundary between artist and audience, based on two premises: an interest in walking as a relational practice and tactic that allows us to read and rewrite space; and an interpretation of scores understood as open invitations and catalysts for action, following the tradition of Fluxus event scores. This collection has been built up step by step, over the years and through exchanges with artists. It brings together contributions from more than sixty artists and collectives working in the fields of music, literature, visual arts, performance, dance and activism, from the 1960s to the present.
