Workshop in eglischer Sprache:
Whether walking together or on our own, we are always synchronizing and desynchronizing: swinging limbs, adjusting muscle tone, heartbeat, breathing… Our bodies are defined by a multiplicity of rhythms, which permanently influence each other. If we look closer into the seemingly simple movement of walking, we discover a rich polychronicity and various forms of mutual attunement.
In a five-days workshop, an open-air performance, and a two-days symposium, artists and scholars from different fields will explore the dynamics of walking in respect to rhythmical self-organization. What are our techniques, our cultures, our ecologies, our politics of walking?
All events are open to the public and admission-free. For the workshop we ask participants to register in advance.
Part I: The Art of Walking – with Katja Münker
The Berlin-based Feldenkrais teacher and performance artist Katja Münker will make participants re-discover walking with the help of the Feldenkrais Method. In playful, explorative and contemplative approaches, walking will be deconstructed into its constituent physical, rhythmical and spatial aspects and then reorganized in order to achieve a more varied walking experience and technique.
Mo 20 + Tu 21, 10am – 5pm, Uferstudio 14
Part II: One Step at a Time – with Hamish Fulton
The British land art and concept artist Hamish Fulton who has achieved international fame as a ‘walking artist’ will host the second part of the workshop, where participants can become familiar with his practice. With a series of small indoor and outdoor walks, and exchange of thoughts on communicating through walking, different states of togetherness and separateness and different options to frame walks will be explored.
Wed 22 – Fri 24, 10am – 5pm (Fri: 3pm), Uferstudio 14
