Walking piece details
Invitation to Walk-Hör-Spiel-Spaziergänge (Listening-Play-Walks) as podcast in Kreuzberg & Friedrichshain.
‘Eintauchen’ is a walk from the podcast series of ‘Invitation to Walk // Listening-Play-Walks’. The four episodes lead and allure to body-perception experiments while walking. They are intended for individual or collective appropriation of the city – with and through somatics, choreography and artistic research. The content touches on anatomical-physiological aspects of perception, backgrounds from body philosophy and embodiment cognition, history and practices of walking art and performance art, as well as urban history.
This walk is dedicated to sensory experience. It is about immersion and how we use our senses to be in the world or to be in the city.
Perceptual exercises will be suggested during this walk. Make sure you also take care of your safety at all times while you are out and about.
Please make sure your player is sufficiently charged. Use headphones without noice-canceling so you can also hear ambient sounds and choose appropriate, weatherproof shoes & clothing to walk outside comfortably.
This walk is conditionally accessible (there may not be lowered sidewalks everywhere).
If you are vision impaired, I recommend that you take this walk with a sighted person for company.
