Parallel city tour: Aberdeen
Exploration workshop with Javier Abarca
19–21 April 2019
Find your own way in a quiet stroll through the backstages of the city. Visit ignored spaces free from commerce and control, where there is a possibility for contemplation. Get to know the hidden environments of graffiti writers, furtive street artists and other outcasts. Difficulty level: very easy, no exploring background needed.
Join us at the introductory lecture for some theoretical and visual background exploring psychogeography, the third landscape, and the view of the city as a playground.
