In 1921 the Paris Dadaists inaugurated a series of excursions that aimed to reclaim urban space by walking. As a reminder of their first ‘visit’ of the church of Saint-Julie-le-Pauvre in Paris exactly 100 years ago and its influence on the development of walking as artistic practice, Fabian Knöbl und Brigitte Kovacs invite the interested public to a collective re-enactment on the 12th of July.
The meeting point will be in front of the church Saint-Julie-le-Pauvre at 3 pm: 48.852151962194625, 2.34688079476078.
By walking together, the impact of the changing terrain on the individual should be re-investigated. Furthermore, the walking encounters will enable the participants to exchange different perspectives on the topic and create new networks.
The group walk through the church’s garden will also mark the starting point for a longer excursion from Paris/France to the Arp Museum in Remagen/Germany, on which Fabian Knöbl und Brigitte Kovacs will set out a new art-route with street signs that will be followed by a guidebook.
With this journey they aim to re-evaluate walking in the 21st century, considering climate change, the coronavirus-pandemic and increasing human influences on nature and landscape. At the same time, they will explore what walking and conversing for many consecutive days means physically and mentally.
