Since the end of the 1960s, the act of drifting, walking or strolling gradually established itself as a complex and fascinating artistic practice, which, in the course of the last four decades, underwent significant changes, thus maintaining its basic premises. The emphasis on the physical act, instead than on the creation of an object; the (utopian) will to turn that very act into the beginning of a transformation of both the artistic milieu and society as a whole; the contradictory nature of the photographic or video documentation that often results from the action; the recreation of a space for narrative in contemporary art: these are some of the issues, intrinsically related to the idea of the drifting, that will be touched upon in this lecture.
