NIGHTWALKERS_UMEÅ #01: The City and Its Double, an evening walk with Expodium. We meet up by the main entrance at Bildmuseet. In conjunction with the exhibition Communitas.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Bring your own mug or cup. Could be your beloved coffee mug or an old cup you no longer use. Or perhaps one you got from a cafe, office or school. Warm drinks will be served during the night walk.
If Umeå’s infrastructure is a designed script for preconceived narratives, then snow is the saboteur of all given scenarios and a catalyst for new ways of experiencing the city. Join us as we walk on it and investigate Umeå 'above' and 'under'– the city and its winter double – the city as a place of arrival, as a temporary place and as a backdrop for a new story. This is not a performance. This is an explorative walk shaped by observing what presents itself as given and merely insignificant.
NIGHTWALKERS is a series of voluntary collective night strolls in cities, followed by discussions. It is initiated by Expodium as a tool for researching the subconscious relations between the participants and the land they walk on. It is a platform of knowledge exchange, a place of coming together and a mode of reading of, and ‘confronting with’ the area’s built environment.
