Abstract

With their interventions, the art projects 'Walk the City' and 'The Unnoticed' penetrated the core of urban environment and selected the centre of Ljubljana as the stage for their performances. Both projects bring art into a public space, where anonymous, coincidental and 'undirected' passers-by, knowingly or not, become viewers and at times even participants within the performance. Regardless of the numerous possibilities, the two art interventions will be primarily looked at in terms of the conceptualization of space and the diverse definitions of walking, while we will lean upon the theories of Michel de Certeau. We will also look at the interventions through the perspective of the ground plan, which will lead to a new understanding and meaning.
