F-WALKS is an embodied practice to collectively experience intersectional spaces in your city. How can listening to stories about feminist appropriation of (urban) spaces facilitate the reassessment of our own bodies in space? During a walk guided by binaural sound recordings, listeners encounter a variety of personal stories of spatial practices transcending geographical and linguistic limits. The audiowalk is an ongoing attempt to capture the plurality of subjective experiences and varying degrees of accessibility to space–and to demonstrate them in an embodied way. Acoustic spaces and the physical environment blend into each other as listeners engage with diverse bodies and people of different gender, age, race and economic backgrounds as they walk.
The F_WALK collects perspectives that are oftentimes invisible, inaudible, and not payed attention to in city planning. Through collecting the stories of our environment, we augment the spatial vocabulary and lay the foundations for more inclusive planning.
