Upon arrival after a four week journey, the Moving On symposium investigates wayfaring as an artistic and spatial practice.
14-15 September 2012 – De Lieteberg, Zuurbroekstraat 16, 3690 Zutendaal, Belgium
Sideways is a translocal, experimental festival for contemporary art and cultural research, exploring non-motorized paths and trails folded into the spaces of everyday life. This first-time event unfolds ‘in the open’ and ‘on the go’. The backbone of the festival is a 4 week expedition on foot through Belgium, from West to East, between August 17th and September 17th 2012. In resonance with the artistic program, the Moving On symposium provides a collaborative meeting ground at the crossroads of contemporary art, the study of mobilities and sustainability, experimental geography, spatial praxis and urban or rural activism.
