‘Built & Grown’ is a walk from the podcast-series ‘Invitation to Walk // Hör-Spiel-Spaziergänge’.The four episodes lead and allure to walking body-perception experiments. They are intended for the appropriation of the city with and through somatics, choreography and artistic research. The content touches on anatomical-physiological aspects of perception, backgrounds from body philosophy and embodiment cognition, history and practices in walking art and performance art, as well as urban history.
This walk investigates the built and the grown in the body and the city by using the own body as a research organ.
Perceptual exercises are suggested during this walk. Make sure to take care of your safety at all times while you are out and about.
Please make sure that your player is sufficiently charged. Use headphones without noise-cancelling so that you can also hear ambient noise and choose appropriate, weatherproof shoes & clothing to be able to walk outside comfortably.
This walk is conditionally accessible (there may not be lowered sidewalks everywhere).
If you are visually impaired, it is recommended that you take this walk with a sighted person.
Any clearly defined city area.
