#walkingart We would like to draw your attention to the following: More than 50 contributions between art projects and critical texts focused on walking art practices. The special issue of Interartive aims at the presentation of papers and art projects that examine or use walking as a contemporary art practice. Since the Situationists, walking has become a widespread contemporary art practice that has at least two aspects: the one is that of a way of experiencing the environment and the body and possibly create artworks from the attained experiences (art of walking). The other aspect is walking art as an independent art medium; a way to initiate works that are autonomously defined and create artworks (walking art). The papers and projects that have been submitted to this special issue reflect on issues that cover various aspects of both the art of walking and the walking art issues. Find the special issue online at: https://walkingart.interartive.org A special issue edited by Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio, Yannis Ziogas and Stella Sylaiou. The text above is taken from the ArtHist newsletter.

Floating through Europe inside a camera? He lived alone inside a floating camera and traveled through 3,000km of Europe’s rivers, surrendering himself and his art to the forces of nature. Light, water and his own emotions are what drive Maciej Markowicz’s entirely unique photographs, which he captures on an antique-style camera obscura that floats from city to city.

Alleged paradisiacal impressions...The exhibition As We Used to Float by JULIAN CHARRIÈRE @julian.charriere at the Berlinische Galerie @berlinischegalerie shows his impressions 70 years after the first US nuclear weapons tests on the bikini atoll. He has embarked on an expedition to a geographical area that has been rendered permanently uninhabitable for man due to the environmental damage caused. #revisit #paradise
We are thinking about #timetravel and the words @louisaelderton wrote about cave paintings in our first article. You can find the whole text Before and After the Collapse: Paintings of the Chauvet Cave in our online journal... Perhaps you too find it hard to fully grasp the magnitude of time. Of course we know the answer to the question of how long the world has existed; we can quickly tap the query into Google and in a matter of seconds read numbers that explain our time continuum—the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old, plus or minus 1 per cent, of which homo sapiens have existed for about 200,000 years. Yet actually feeling this quantification of time arguably requires something beyond our physical capabilities. Each of our bodies takes us through a hundred years, if we’re lucky, so to really feel the immense scale of time’s passing is difficult for us to compute, regardless of our cognitive understanding. When we look at ancient images or objects, we might sometimes think, I can’t quite believe how old it really is...#timecontinuum #beforeandafter #pastandfuture
