The Covid 19 crisis of 2020-21 has taken many names, including “The Great Pause.” It has forced us to halt our usual habit patterns and critically reflect on how we conduct our daily lives. New forms of movement and sociability have emerged in the wake of this global pandemic. Why and how do people develop walking practices during periods of physical and psychological constraint? What has this experience revealed to us, and how have our attitudes towards walking shifted as a result, perhaps even in ways that we can crry with us in a post-Covid reality?

This cafe conversation centers on academic research and artistic practices that investigate the act of walking as shaped by pandemic conditions.

Speakers: Ana Correa Do Lago (Brazil), Martin P Eccles (UK), Georgios Varoutsos (UK), moderated by Lydia Matthews, Professor of Visual Culture, Parsons School of Design / The New School, New York (US).

Presentations of the speakers:

Ana Correa Do Lago: Caretakers of Parque do Flamengo (pdf)

Martin P Eccles: Walking Contención Island (audio paper)

Georgios Varoutsos:

Prerecorded paper presentations and other media will be available in this post at least 48 hours before the Walk Listen Café starts, and the participants are requested to look into the online materials before joining the Café.

Get behind the microphone to discover how one makes compelling audio recordings that engage both armchair listeners and those of us out and about on foot. We are delighted to have brought together four creatives who have travelled to remote places, revealed hidden histories, and captured the soundscapes and voices of past and present, to enable us to sit back in comfort or stride forward to listen to what is unseen.
