The act of walking as a social phenomenon has gained renewed importance in the twenty-first century. The group exhibition WALK! at the SCHIRN provides an overview of walking as a practice in contemporary art production—a facet that has so far been rarely considered. It examines contemporary explorations and expansions of Walking Art, which had its origins in the 1960s movements of Minimalism, Land Art, and Conceptual Art.

The SCHIRN presents more than forty international artists whose work incorporates walking as an essential element.
