About the Book
Hunting the Soul of Winter is a walking art project that explores relationship to place. Set in Hochkamp, a tiny village in East Germany over two winter months, the project employs the practice of psychogeography to inquire into the themes of soul, death, embodiment, connectedness, and regeneration. By using displacement in a foreign country as a starting point, it seeks to mimic the sense of social and environmental estrangement experienced in many contemporary cultures, in order to find tools for reconnection.
