Traffic islands are the doors of the city center and the places in the city gathering. This is precisely why they harbor a huge potential to reflect on the quality of design and use in the public space through participation, walking and performativity citizen involvement.
This walk is a collective walk. As a walking group, space can be taken up consciously or unconsciously: Traffic comes to a standstill, entrances and doors are blocked and streets are blocked, information or objects are withdrawn from view, vistas are prevented and furniture is occupied. Unplanned choreographies or unforeseen performances can emerge: a co- creation in being-there that generates an aesthetic understanding of the environment.
Duration: 3 hours (incl. break)
