The Art and Politics of Walking: Show & Tell
Thu 13 October 2016, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
Peek behind the scenes of our exhibition Loitering with Intent. Walking is more than pedestrian. It can be a political and or artistic act. Travel through time and space to encounter heroes, villains, revolutionaries, artists, poets, philosophers, situationists, monsters and mystics. We will also discuss how the city has been shaped by transport and why Mancunians have fought for the right to wander our cities. There will be a particular focus on psychogeographers who use creative walking methods to explore hidden power structures, secret histories and how the environment makes us feel. Before the talk there is a chance to explore the exhibition with one of the curators and a unique opportunity to get close to zines, maps and artists books which add to the story.
