Special Issue WARP x Soapbox Journal results from the Walking as a Research Practice Conference 2022 Proceedings. It is part of the follow-up strategy devised regarding the outcomes of the WARP Conference. This event occurred at the Allard Pierson Museum, University of Amsterdam, in September 2022, supported by the CUS, ASCA and NICA, University of Amsterdam.
The form, design and production of the book were developed in close collaboration between the designer, the editor and the binder, aiming for a suggestion of the book to be read while walking. Each design and editing decision followed this idea, resulting in a specific form of reading and holding. The launch of this book will be a walking and reading session. Starting with a short presentation and reading, the authors will invite the audience to join them in a walk following the book’s premise as a prompt.
Opening: Friday, 15th of September at 16:00 – 22:00
