Abstract and Keywords

This chapter is perhaps best treated as a ‘site’ rather than a treatise. It employs disrupted writing strategies, based in turn on ‘walking’ practices and the authors’ background in performance, as tools for playful debate, collaboration, intervention, and spatial meaning-making. The chapter, like our walking, is intended to be porous; for others to read into it and connect from it and for the specificities and temporalities of sites to fracture, erode, and distress it. It draws on the outcomes of previous works including site-specific performance works such as Mis-Guided Tours or published Mis-Guides (for example, A Mis-Guide To Anywhere, 2006), ‘drifts’, mythogeographic mapping, public art or installations, explorations of the Wienfluss, excavations of subterranean library stacks, and a recently installed network of plaques across an English seaside resort (Everything you need to build a town is here, 2010).

Keywords: performance, stratigraphy, place, walking practices, writing practices
