Can one make art by walking? Can you walk a work of art like a painter paints a painting or a director makes a movie? What is walking art? Does it produce tangible works or intangible experiences? Is it performance or technique? In 2019 a peripatetic art conference was organized in Prespa. Artists and art theorists from all over the world meet, converse and walk, discovering their environment, time and bodies. Walking, either as a tool, or as a performance, or as a means of exploring space, is used in art and its contributors invite the viewer to dialogue in a magical landscape.

"The documentary is dedicated to the memory of our beloved Eugenia Kiourexidou"
