Event details

12 Aug - 19 Sep, 2021

WE WALK thematizes the artistic practice of walking in the public urban space of Zurich. Not
only since the Corona pandemic have questions been raised about new urban spaces and a new understanding of the public sphere. The artists present in this exhibition have long been engaged in participatory knowledge transfer, cultural participation, negotiation and appropriation of territories of Zurich’s urban public space. How can artistic interventions change the quality of encounters and exchanges in urban space? How does walking unmask traditional forms of design and planning and urban policy measures? This exhibition and actions/walks show critical and artistic explorations of the limits and possibilities of this most everyday of modalities.
