WALK!

€31.82 (excl. VAT)

The act of walking has grown in importance as a social phenomenon in the 21st century. Alongside everyday physical movement or the modern moment of recreation and sensual experience, it also touches upon current questions of ecolo­gi­cal, globa­l, geopo­li­ti­cal and economic change. In its group exhibition WALK!, SCHIRN offers an overview of the previously little examined aspect of walking as a practice in contemporary artistic production. The exhibition addresses the contemporary examination and expansion of Walking Art, whose origins can be traced back to the Mini­ma­lis­m, Land Art and Concept Art of the 1960s.

SCHIRN presents more than 40 inter­na­tio­nal artists, in whose work walking represents an important element. The approximately 100 photographs, video­ works, colla­ges, drawings, paintings and sculptures as well as live perfor­man­ces and participative projects in the public realm aesthetically interweave walking with the challenges of today, reflect the current debate surrounding subjects such as globa­li­sation and climate change and pursue forms of protest and demons­tra­tion.
