There are spaces in our cities that are neither our home nor got any other objective purpose. Away from the tourist highlights, planned places and “natural” landscape, you can find remnants that can tell a story: a story about the functioning and planning of our environment. Through those spaces, I would like to stroll with the participants and draw there.
We will not be the first to stroll in this way: the sociologist Lucius Burckhardt had walks with many participants in many cities and is regarded as the inventor of the strollology. His critical view of the planning of cities has left its mark on architects and designers. It is planned to implement our drawings with simple, conventional printing techniques in printing graphics in which the mixing and the separation of colors play a main role.
Christoph Feist (1973) is draftsman, graphic designer, illustrator and teaches at the School of Visual Arts in Leipzig, Germany.
