AUDIO WALK & PODCAST-RELEASE by Katja Münker
The four episodes of the podcast series lead and allure to walking body-perception experiments. They are intended for the appropriation of the city with and through somatics, choreography and artistic research. The content touches on anatomical-physiological aspects of perception, backgrounds from body philosophy and embodiment cognition, history and practices in walking art and performance art, as well as urban history.
This Sunday, the podcast series will be opened collectively with the walk Kreislauf (circuit). After the urban theater experience on Strausberger Platz Katja Münker and Mattef Kuhlmey will give an insight into the creation of the walks and look forward to a lively exchange. Via an online platform, all 4 podcast parts are individually accessible and freely usable after the release event.
