New Media, Performance Art, Photography

Hamish Fulton, born in London in 1946, is working on an entirely independent body of work that is rather poetic and borne by a distinguished, authentic and open-minded attitude. For over 40 years, he has been conveying and acknowledging “walking” as an art form: Walks. Fulton makes Walks in all corners of the world, such as a walk “From Coast to Coast” in the UK, for instance. They result in wall drawings and images, photos and objects capturing in a variety of ways the defining phenomena of the Walks. At the same time, according to the motto “No Walk, No Art”, they can also be read as a passive protest against the excesses of urbanization that Fulton formulates in a sympathetic, yet uncompromising way. In 1994, Hamish Fulton, for the first time, directly involved other people in his work with a Group Walk. This volume documents the nucleus of the exhibition at Villa Merkel in Esslingen (9/3–8/6/2014), the Walks recorded by the artist in recent years in Tibet and India.

Hardcover with dust jacket, b&w and colour throughout.
