WALK!

18 February - 22 May 2022
SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT

The act of walking as a social phenom­enon has gained renewed impor­tance in the twenty-first century. Beyond its conno­ta­tions of everyday phys­ical move­ment and the modern aspect of recre­ation and sensual expe­ri­ence, walking touches upon current issues of ecolog­ical, global, geopo­lit­ical, and economic change. The group exhi­bi­tion “WALK!” at Schirn Kunsthalle Frank­furt provides an overview of walking as a prac­tice in contem­po­rary art produc­tion—a facet that has so far been rarely consid­ered. It exam­ines contem­po­rary explo­rations and expan­sions of Walking Art, which had its origins in the 1960s move­ments of Mini­malism, Land Art, and Concep­tual Art.

The Schirn presents more than forty inter­na­tional artists whose work incor­po­rates walking as an essen­tial element.
