lecture by Francesco Careri (I)

Walkscapes deals with strolling as an architecture of landscape. Walking is considered as an autonomous form of art and a primary act in the symbolic transformation of the territory. It is – as to speak – an aesthetic instrument of knowledge and a physical transformation of the “negotiated” space that is converted into an urban intervention. From primitive nomadism to Dada and Surrealism, from the Lettrist to the Situationist International and from Minimalism to Land Art, this lecture revealing the notion of Walkscapes narrates the perception of landscape through a history of the traversed city.
