In this session Dr. Alice Twemlow and a panel of artistic researchers working in different media explore the cross currents and the points of differentiation between their various approaches to walking as a research method. Among other topics, they will address the relationship between walking and other strategies and tactics such as writing, mapping, image-making, archiving, sensing, speculation, listening, and place-making, and between walking and issues and themes such as rhythm, public space, climate crisis, the Anthropocene, and slowness.

The session also invites a discussion on how walking could be situated more critically in what theorists Stephanie Springgay and Sarah E. Truman have labeled a “more-than-human” methodological discourse, with the potential to engender “solidarity, accountability, and response-ability.”

About ARC

ARC logo

ARC (art_research_convergence) is an outreach initiative of Leiden University Academy of Creative and Performing Arts, and the University of the Arts The Hague, for the active communication of artistic research. ARC hosts exhibitions, installations, lectures and performances every second Tuesday of the month.

The idea is to enable a space of communication and action where artist-researchers can show work in progress (or finished work in need of feedback) and discuss it with the audience.
