The Team

We are a team of Berlin-based artists and researchers that organised the first WALKshop -a workshop on walking.

The five of us guided a small group of participants through a series of exercises that revolved around drifting through the city, but also just moving inside a room in ways that evoked excitement and curiosity and made us rethink who we are (or want to be) as bodily units that share life and movement in this city.We are approaching walking as a creative practice, as a way to connect to the city and to ourselves through the mere act of putting one foot in front of the other and pacing along.
