Walking's New Movement
A book about developments in walking and walk-performance for enthusiasts, practitioners, students and academics.
In walking’s new movement Phil Smith considers where things are at for walking (as art and as performance), psychogeography, and the use and abuse of public space.
walking’s new movement is intended for anyone who makes, or wants to make, walking art or walk-performances - and for anyone interested in psychogeography, radical walking, drift and dérive, site-specific performance, and the use/abuse of public space in the shadow of Jack the Ripper, Jimmy Savile and many others.
