This semester focuses on walk as art and curatorial practices. We will explore its cultural, social and art historical background and get to know the recent examples of the theme (exhibitions, art projects) and read theoretical texts related to walk as critical art practice. During the semester we investigate and research certain parts of the city with the usage of our feet, ears and eyes. Group and individual works will be elaborated by the end of the course.

The aim of the recent project was for students to formulate different methods of working together and gain experiences in exploring and representing a previously defined area of city: its streets, buildings, squares and the everyday life of its inhabitants. The results of this process would be an online publication that includes the artistic research projects divided into chapters. The outcome could be considered as a visual diary about experiencing the city using this frame and to introduce the reader / viewer into the methodology of the collaborative process which led from a conceptual idea to the different aspects of its realisation.
