The covid-19 situation has brought about a restriction to civil liberties unprecedented in our
lifetime. On a matter of public concern, new logics of visibility and mobility have modified
urban interactions and attendance. What can be the role of art in this current political, social,
environmental, and medical situation? In what ways public space art explores alternative modes of life and (co) existence? How does the wake of the pandemic have challenged our atomized movement through city spaces? How do we negotiate space? And what does “together” mean in times of social distancing?

My walking project will be ground on the experience of live embodied practice and exploration
of the public body in common areas. For that reason, I will follow a site-based methodology
designing choreographic scores based on actions of presence, movement, and attendance. Every score varies based on different acts, and the public is welcome to perform the actions
collectively. With choreographic scores, I would like to implement a format of an artistic/research coupling and conjure up a choreographic site practice and reflections on the body in various conceptual gestures and walking patterns in public locations. The scores are physical actions based on typical patterns of group proxemic behavior, flow composition, and gestures. Each score encourages involvement in choreographic actions. People are invited to cooperative activities to create walking shapes in the everyday public space, reflect on and explore the new state of distance, intimacy, and the sense of belonging between individuals and society. The BODY_PUBLIC performative walk sparks interest in collective matters and specific social issues. As follows, the (public) body becomes something more than a physical invention, a site for representation and reference. The BODY_PUBLIC uses a mobile methodology and encourages a community in the relationship of bodies to one another.

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
