The Walking Body III

Walking, in particular drifting, or strolling, is already – with the speed culture of our time – a kind of resistance…a very immediate method for unfolding stories. – Francis Alÿs

In the frame of Contemporary Walking Arts, the Walking Body III (TWB3) is an artistic event and innovative encounter with educational and research character. It has an interdisciplinary nature and approach, which includes theoretical and practical concerns on participation, encounter and dialogue. Incorporating visual and performing arts, TWB3 experimental activities enhance different learning possibilities as they focus on walking artistic practices, individual or participatory projects and exploration of new media.

Walking is a defining human activity with poetic and political resonance as well as mundane and ceremonial manifestations that play a central role in contemporary art, social and cultural history. Within art walking has been used repeatedly as a tool for thinking about space, movement, history and even material inequality. TWB3 plans to hold 7 walk-shops, to take place during the week of March 21-25, 2022, which include walks, online workshops and artistic creation projects. The event is organized by EAAD School of Architecture, Arts and Design at Guimarães, Portugal. A colloquium will be held at the Garagem Avenida gallery (EAAD), and will be shared directly via streaming to a global public. TBW3 activities include also a discussion with international artists about their professional itinerary, presenting their projects in the academic, curatorial and artistic spheres.

Workshop: Walking Arts 2.0 
18-21 October 2021

The international practice-based project Collaborative Art Project which was successfully launched in 2020 by Professor Klitsa Antoniou with guest artist Maria Loizidou, is organized for a second year by Cut Contemporary Fine Arts Lab of the Department of Fine Arts at the Cyprus University of Technology. Within the framework of this program, artists with international recognition and significant work are invited to share aspects of their work with the students of the Department, as well as with the general public. The aim of the program is on the one hand to offer participants a "toolkit" for observing, recording and analyzing the work of the invited artists, which they will be able to adapt later in their own artistic process, and on the other hand to familiarize them with experimental artistic interventions of a collaborative nature. 

The second guest of the Collaborative Art Project is Geert Vermeire. He is a curator, poet and artist, from Belgian origin, moving constantly between Greece, Portugal and Brazil. Through collaborative processes, departing from the ethical involvement of cultural action, he has rooted his work in walking arts, extending it into sound art and digital art. He is one of the pioneers in locative media, with a focus on spatial writing, locative sound & performance and social practices. Since the early 2000s walking is  key to his artistic work,   centered around place and ecology, relating to our planet in crisis, unfolding around human connections, text and space, with works of arts, site-specific interventions and artistic walks engaging both with the landscape and with those walking through the landscape.
