In a practical and reflective approach, Geert Vermeire, Yannis Ziogas, Christos Ioannidis, and Annie Tsevdomaria will engage with you in a sharing of practices and methodologies around the documenting, registering and archiving of walking as an art, starting from its most fundamental question: “Does Walking Art need to be preserved, or if the Walking itself is the Art, does it make sense at all to register it.”

Walking Art and its (im)possibilities to preserve via documentation or artistic media is the main topic of this talk, followed by an exchange of thoughts and practices on registering walking art with a documentary maker, a video artist and the creators of a book who captured – each on their own way – the fifty creative walks and walkshops at the Prespes Walking Arts Encounters in 2019.

Speakers include documentary maker Christos Ioannidis, video artist Annie Tsevdomaria, and Yannis Ziogas, Geert Vermeire and Aspasia Voudouri, editors and creators of the book Walking Arts/Walking Practices/Walking Bodies, which will be pre-premiered during this talk, will complement the group of speakers. This, together with the first public screening of chapters of the video documentary Is Walking Art?, realized at the Walking Encounters / Conference 2019 in Prespes.

Excerpts of the video documentary will show short interviews in Prespa, with Bill Gilbert (University of New Mexico, US), Lydia Matthews (Parsons New School, New York, US), Stalker (Rome, Italy), Laura Reeder (Boston University, US), Jez Hastings (Staffordshire University, UK), and with Yannis Ziogas and Geert Vermeire (coordinators of the Walking Arts Encounters in Prespa).

    1. No, it was not. If you were coming from Facebook, where the event is listed, by Facebook, as ‘free’, this is because Facebook does not accept events that are not free and where ticketing is not handled by Facebook itself.

      We do not want to be forced into the Facebook payment system, so this is the end result.
