Walking piece details

Daniel Beerstecher started his extreme Slow-Walk Marathon within the Donaugalerie Tuttlingen on July 14, 2019 at noon at the Museum ArtPlus in Donaueschingen. He walked along the Danube for about 60 days, continued to Tuttlingen and to the finish line on the runway of the ariport Neuhausen ob Eck. In a distance of 42,195 km he walked approximately 120 meters per hour, for 6 hours each day.

During this radical deceleration, his current positions and coordinates, a live video and walking speed were transmitted via GPS and technologies of extreme athletes, on his website and at the Museum ArtPlus, the Kunsthalle Göppingen and the Gallery of the City of Tuttlingen.

In an innovative way the artist dealt with the geographical, technical and social conditions and challenges of our present. Online followers and local audiences could attend or even join the physical part of the performance.
