Walking as a Question

Event details

04 - 11 Jul, 2021
FREE

International Walking Encounters/Conference
July 4th to July 11th 2021, Prespa, Greece

What questions does walking pose?

What questions can walking be used to explore?

Who walks?

Who chooses to walk?

Who is forced to walk?

Who can walk?

Who cannot?

In raising walking as a question in itself, we invite critical and artistic engagement with the limits and possibilities of this most everyday of modalities. Borders and checkpoints curtail walking. Dog companions stimulate a stroll. People have been forcibly marched to new territories. People have walked across enormous distances in search of refuge, asylum and freedom. Some use parks and hiking trails for their regular exercise; others walk miles to work; still others must contend with walls or constricted spaces such as in a prison yard or camp.

How can walking be used to highlight or intervene in political, personal, social, economic, and ecological issues?

How does walking expose assumptions regarding ability/disability, mobility and immobility?

How can we think about the material and sensory aspects of walking—the soles of one’s feet, calluses, footwear, hiking poles, crutches and wheelchairs?

What sort of a question can walking as an aesthetic practice ask of our contemporary moment—of the pandemic, of migration, of climate change?

What questions does the ground you walk on raise?

What sort of questions does walking ask of you as a person? How do you ask questions by walking?

What questions are activated by walking the territories we inhabit (in terms of negotiating and designing the urban/rural – public/private space)?

What questions are activated by walking the territories and with the communities of Prespa?

How can we share a walking experience in real time with others who live elsewhere in the world through walking hubs?
