OoRS Leads Walks in Berlin for Elastic City

July 28-29, 2012
Berlin, Germany


This walk will reanimate “gesture” as a field of investigation so that participants might embody a more congruous and attentive way of moving through urban space. The movement of a hand. The position of an arm, a head, a body. A manner of being. A mode of action. Berlin as multipliCITY, as a city of multiplicity–of overlapping bodies, communities, laborers, cultures, languages, and gestures–is our common ground of research.
