Guided Tour


‘Guided Tour’ is a study of space thinking, a performative tool which aims to make one think/name/inhabit/move space from within the body, in order to affect and be affected by the bodies/ objects/ limits/ dimensions/ stories/ speeches and rules shaping (or forming) it.


The project Guided Tour is a performace based on research whose aim is to explore the different spaces that appear when we relate them to architecture and to the context we inhabit.  The term and the format of a Guided tour are used in order to perform a spatial trajectory inside a building. In a guided tour there is usually one person, the guide, who has some knowledge on a site/building and its history. This person guides “visitors” who ask from him&her information about the place. During the last years tourism has increased dramatically, thus producing a reality of consumption of the public and private space. The project Guided Tour is interested in a reflection on this phenomenon. It seeks to generate gaps in this consumption of spaces. It asks if we can become, not merely visitors, but inhabitants of a particular place.
