Landscape with Lecture
2016

This walk, accompanied by a lecture, took place in a new area development in Nijmegen (NL), which combines practical defense against natural forces (rising water levels) with the economy of recreation, leisure and tourism. The lecture considered, among other things, questions on the nature of the area's landscape, the military origins of its architecture and the politics of viewing land as landscape.

Duration 30 mins.

This lecture was commissioned by De Oversteek and took place several times on the 4th of September 2016.

Many thanks to Lieke Wouters, Simon Kentgens and Loes Verstappen.
