The Drive of Walking is the second in a series of 10 master classes organized by the Hubert van Eyck Academie en made possible by the Mondriaan Fund.
This master class investigates walking as a significant aspect of art practice and as a specific method of research, perception and experience. 12 participants will explore in collective and individual walks philosophical, cultural, phenomenological, botanical, ecological, spatial questions. The master class leaders will initiate the walks in all these senses, and, together with the participants, will examine all its possibilities.
