Two days prior to this program artist Armin Linke and cultural activist Lisa Yun Lee will walk through Chicago and observe the city’s built environment, paying close attention to the ways diverse publics and people interact with Chicago's monumental architecture, as well as the urban, cultural and social structures that define our relationships.

Linke will create photographs during the walk that will be projected as part of a wider selection from the artist’s photographic archive as he and Lee discuss their experience. The talk will also look more broadly at the interrelation of invisible information flows and informal networks behind the proliferation of massive and precisely engineered structures, which have reshaped topography and commerce across the globe.
