Francesco Careri is the author of ‘Walkscapes. Walking as an Aesthetic Practice’ and co-founder of the participatory urban workshop Stalker/Osservatorio Nomade, which is formed of architects, artists, activists and researchers. Stalker use walking as a collective mode of expression and a tool for mapping the city and its changes. In this lecture, Careri talks about his practice of collective walking and its capacity to generate architecture and landscape, and shape the meaning of spaces.
Careri is an Associate Professor at the Department of Architecture of Roma Tre University, where he runs Civic Arts – a peripatetic laboratory grounded in the walking exploration of neglected urban areas.
