A selection of articles from the seventies, eighties, nineties, and the year 2000. The result is a fascinating chronicle and invaluable record of a turbulent period that gives an overview and survey of British art and its reception over the past thirty years which is wholly unprecedented in its scope.
An exploration of walking and mapping as both form and content in art projects using old and new technologies, shoe leather and GPS.
The book explores the textual work of Art & Language, Victor Burgin and others; the New Sculpture being produced by those such as Richard Long and Michael Craig-Martin; and the artists who addressed society and politics, including Stephen Willats and Margaret Harrison.

The first extensive survey of walking in contemporary art. This item is part of the Study Room Guide to Remoteness (P2600).
This Study Room Guide is concerned with journeys as an emerging trend in Live Art. A significant number of artists, practitioners and companies are currently incorporating travel into their work and using journeys in a variety of different ways.
Put yourself in Lone Twin’s shoes as they take you on a journey that’s slightly scruffy, very funny, and even mystical in its wandering logic.
This documentation has since been presented with the permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010. The archive looked at examples of the performance lecture as a form of artistic and critical expression and its potential to address a broad range of cultural issues and philosophical ideas.
