The special issue of Interartive on Walking Art / Walking Aesthetics aims at the presentation of papers and art projects that examine or use walking as a contemporary art practice. Since the Situationists, walking has become a widespread contemporary art practice that has at least two aspects: the one is that of a way of experiencing the environment and the body and possibly create artworks from the attained experiences (art of walking). The other aspect is walking art as an independent art medium; a way to initiate works that are autonomously defined and create artworks (walking art). The papers and projects that have been submitted to this special issue reflect on issues that cover various aspects of both the art of walking and the walking art issues.

'Working internationally and collaboratively is not rocket science. It requires hard work, interest and long hours. It is sometimes infuriating, often puzzling, but also rewarding. We have chosen to work collaboratively and internationally because we are curious and strongly believe larger networks can lead to new possibilities for individual artists and enable development of their artistry. Co-produced, co-funded, co-created productions strengthen the art community by bringing new work opportunities, parameters and models. It widens the horizon of everyone involved. This we say with confidence after 15-20 years in the business. Leading to not only successful and complicated but also failed projects, on our roster'. Read this practical and resourceful guide by ÁSA RICHARDSDÓTTIR and LENE BANG HENNINGSEN.
