Instructional walks offer opportunities to participate independently, to refuse, or to perform in the imagination


Instructions for a walk

Paper Jam#2

May 2012

A publication curated by Charlotte Seidel and Emile Ouromov, assembled, forwarded and then printed out on the printers of partner venues in Zurich, Weimar, Paris and Bangkok. The pile of printouts, produced each time in one single copy, are made available to the visitors who remain free to simply have a look or to take a sample home – until stock lasts. The design of OpenCity’s contribution relates to the frustration derived from absurd or ‘impossible’ instructions and futile actions
