This short theoretical course will explore the term psychogeography, its origins in theory and visionary writings, its beginnings in the avant-garde practices of the surrealists and its place in contemporary visual practice. We will draw on the work of the current exhibiting artist, Hannah Collins, as well as the work or other writers, artists and film makers to explore the symbiotic relationship between man, nature and the urban environment and how that relationship is manifested in different cultures and spaces.
Steffi Klenz is a German artist, living in London, best known for her large-scale photographic works of unusual urban spaces. Her photographic practice is fundamentally concerned with challenging conventional conceptions of architecture. Klenz worked with the artist Hannah Collins to produce her publication The Fragile Feast (2011).
