Incl. Bibliographical references
ISBN: 978-3-95679-279-3
Walking, that most basic of human actions, was transformed in the twentieth century by Surrealism, the Situationist International, and Fluxus into a tactic for revolutionizing everyday life. Each group chose locations in the urban landscape as sites—from the flea markets and bars of Paris to the sidewalks of New York—and ambulation as the essential gesture. Keep Walking Intently traces the meandering and peculiar footsteps of these avant-garde artists as they moved through the city, encountering the marvelous, studying the environment, and re-enchanting the banal.

Incl. Bibliographical references
ISBN: 84-252-1841-1
Walkscapes deals with strolling as an architecture of landscape. Walking as an autonomous form of art, a primary act in the symbolic transformation of the territory, an aesthetic instrument of knowledge and a physical transformation of the "negotiated" space, which is converted into an urban intervention. From primitive nomadism to Dada and Surrealism, from the Lettrist to the Situationist International, and from Minimalism to Land Art, this book narrates the perception of landscape through a history of the traversed city.

‘The Art of Walking: a field guide' is the first extensive survey of walking in contemporary art. Combining short texts on the subject with a variety of artists work, The Art of Walking provides a new way of looking at this everyday subject.The introduction relates the art of walking now to a wide range of historic precedents, and is followed by a series of visually led ‘Walks' dealing with seven overlapping themes: footprints and lines; writers and philosophers; marches and processions; aliens, dandies and drifters; slapstick; studios, museums and biennales; and dog walkers.

Walking and Mapping : Artists as Cartographers / by Karen O'Rourke. - Cambridge, Mass. : The MIT Press, 2013. - 334 p. : ills. ; 23 cm
Incl. Bibliographical references, Index
ISBN: 978-0-262018500
In ‘Walking and Mapping', Karen O'Rourke explores a series of walking/mapping projects by contemporary artists. Some chart "emotional GPS"; some use GPS for creating "datascapes" while others use their legs to do "speculative mapping." Many work with scientists, designers, and engineers. Mapping is a way for us to locate ourselves in the world physically, culturally, or psychologically; Debord produced maps like collages that traced the "psychogeography" of Paris. Today, the convergence of global networks, online databases, and new tools for location-based mapping coincides with a resurgence of interest in walking as an art form.

To Henri Lefebvre, the space and "lived everydayness" of the inter-dependent, multi-faceted city produces manifold possibilities of identifiction and realisation through often imperceptible interactions and practices.' Art and the City' takes this observation as its cue to examine the role of art against a backdrop of globally rising urban populations, taking into account the more recent performative and relational "turns" of art that have sought in their city settings to identify a participating spectator. Nicolas Whybrow discusses diverse examples of artworks, representing three key modern modalities of urban arts practice: walking, play, and cultural memory.

Incl. Bibliographical references, Index.
ISBN: 9781781685570
What does it feel like to find the city's edge, to explore its forgotten tunnels and scale unfinished skyscrapers high above the metropolis? ‘Explore Everything' reclaims the city, recasting it as a place for endless adventure. Plotting expeditions from London, Paris, Berlin, Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, Bradley L. Garrett has tested the boundaries of urban security in order to experience the city in ways beyond the everyday. He calls it "place hacking": the recoding of closed, secret, hidden and forgotten urban spaces to make them realms of opportunity. The book is also a manifesto, combining philosophy, politics and adventure, on our rights to the city and how to understand the twenty-first- century metropolis.

How we walk, where we walk, why we walk tells the world who we are. Walking is a profoundly universal aspect of what makes us humans social creatures, and engaged with the world.

From pilgrim to pedestrian, flâneur to stalker, the names may change but the activity of walking remains constant, creating a literary tradition encompassing philosophy and poetry, the novel and the manifesto; a tradition which this book explores in detail. Today, as the figure of the wanderer returns to the forefront of the public imagination, writers and walkers from around the world are re-engaging with the ideas which animated earlier generations. For the walker is once again on the march, mapping new territory and recording new visions of the landscape.

In the process he reveals the dark underbelly of a London many of us did not know existed.

The Situationist City / Simon Sadler. - Cambridge, MA ; London : The MIT Press, 1998. - 232 p. : afdb. ; 24 cm
Incl. Bibliographical references
ISBN: 0-262-19392-2
In this book, Simon Sadler investigates the artistic, architectural, and cultural theories that were once the foundations of Situationist thought, particularly as they applied to the form of the modern city. According to the Situationists, the benign professionalism of architecture and design had led to a sterilization of the world that threatened to wipe out any sense of spontaneity or playfulness. Their principle for the reorganization of cities was simple and seductive: let the citizens themselves decide what spaces and architecture they want to live in and how they wish to live in them. This would instantly undermine the powers of state, bureaucracy, capital, and imperialism, thereby revolutionizing people's everyday lives.

ISBN: 87-7407-241-2
Life Between Buildings is Jan Gehl's classic text on the importance of designing urban public space with the fundamental desires of people as guiding principles. The book describes essential elements that contribute to people's enjoyment of spaces in the public realm. These elements remain remarkably constant even as architectural styles go in and out of fashion and the character of the ‘life between buildings' changes.

Cities for people / author Jan Gehl. - Washington : Island Press, 2010. - 270 p. : ills. ; 26 cm
Incl. Bibliographical references, Index
ISBN: 978-1-59726-573-7
This book elaborates on many of Gehl's ideas as an observer of urban quality and a philosopher of cities as solutions to the environmental and health crises that we face. He examines some of the world's cities that have successfully improved over the last decades, and compares data on how pedestrians use public spaces in cities in Europe, Australia, and America.

The Unknown City : Contesting Architecture and Social Space : a Strangely Familiar Project / edited by Iain Borden, Joe Kerr, Jane Rendell, with Alicia Pivaro. - Cambridge, Mass. ; London : The MIT Press, 2001. - 533 p. : ills. ; 26 cm
Incl. Bibliographical references, Index
ISBN: 978-0-262-02471-6
‘The Unknown City' takes its place in the emerging architectural literature that looks beyond design process and buildings to discover new ways of looking at the urban experience. A multistranded contemplation of the notion of "knowing a place," it is about both the existence and the possibilities of architecture and the city. Although many of the essays are driven by social, cultural, and urban theory, they also tell real stories about real places. Each piece is in some way a critique of capitalism and a thought experiment about how designers and city dwellers working together can shape the cities of tomorrow.

Jan Rothuizen : On A Clear Day You Can See Forever / concept Jan Rothuizen, Armand Mevis. - Breda : Artimo Foundation, 1998. - 192 p. : ills. ; 24 cm

During the summer of 1995 Jan Rothuizen was invited to participate in a residence program in the woods of Maine to work for a period of three months. He decided to stay in America and rented a studio in New York. This book is the result of walking and wandering endlessly through the streets, a way to put all the drawings, photos, objects, paintings, and texts side-by-side so together they resemble a street or even a city that you can wander through.

WEL IN DE BIBLIOTHEEK MAAR NIET IN DE ETALAGE / IN THE LIBRARY BUT NOT PART OF THE WINDOW DISPLAY

De ongedeelde stad = The Undivided City / by Jacqueline Schoemaker. - Eindhoven : Onomatopee, 2012. - 130 p. : ills. ; 21 cm. - (Cabinet Project). - nederlands / english
ISBN: 978-90-78454-86-1
The Undivided City, by Jacqueline Schoemaker, deals with the shifting borders between controlled and uncontrolled space, with the interaction between an individual user of the urban space and the planned environment. The title is derived from a policy instrument by which population groups are spread across the city in order to prevent ghetto forming but by which human behaviour is normalised and uniformity is the result. In this book Jacqueline Schoemaker cuts the city into slices by walking straight lines through it. In a kind of horizontal archaeology she observes and experiences the urban space at the same time. The insights which result form the walking very concretely touch on the meaning of the concept of ‘community'.
