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.

With Mirjam Bayerdörfer, Kira van Eijsten, Gisela Hochuli, Verica Kovacevska, künstlerinnenkollektiv marsie, Marie-Anne Lerjen, Maricruz Peñaloza, Tanja Trampe, Julia Weber

Walking arts and walking stories

2021-07-15 18:00

Online

In East and West, for centuries, painters, poets, dancers were walking in the landscape (natural and urban) and finding sources of reference or inspiration. Walking stories are carried in memory and remain existing for as long as there is a body to carry them. Walking is not characterized by one solid approach; it can be drifting, wandering, strolling, aimless, or purposeful. Each one of these practices suggests a body that remembers and they are introducing different approaches of storytelling.
