“I don’ t check the street signs at all. My feet remember the way.”
Peripatetics is composed of a video piece and a publication including texts by renown writers and intellectuals such as: Svetlana Boym, Maria Koundoura, Pablo Medina, Ersi Sotiropoulos, Heather Felty, George Kalogeris, Melissa Green and Jelle Bouwhuis, among others. Drawing on the Aristotelian notion of peripatetics and using video cameras as a tool for re-mapping the city of Athens, the video piece Peripatetics (Athens) reveals a contemporary image of public space, a direct interconnection between heterotopia and migration.
