HMS-459P Walkscapes

3 Credits

New York City is a site of hospitality that can be observed, recorded, analyzed, and reimagined through the material practice of walking. In this interactive seminar, students collectively engage in the walking practices of the writers and artists associated with historic avant-garde movements including Dada, Surrealism, and the Situationists. Since the relationship between human behavior and the city is dynamic, the students’ investigations and interventions will be informed by the concept of time and the manifestation of the past, present, and future.
