Continental Drift Then and Now: Update on a Decade-Long Experiment Meeting with Brian Holmes and Claire Pentecost
Brian Holmes and Claire Pentecost, from Chicago USA, present the long-term investigative walking project Continental Drift.
Continental Drift began in 2005 as a series of seminars with the 16 Beaver Group in New York, inquiring into geopolitical change and its local consequences. Participants from Chicago helped fulfil the promise of the title with the ten-day “Continental Drift through the Midwest Radical Cultural Corridor” across the states of Illinois and Wisconsin in the summer of 2008. Since then, the combination of theoretical and on-the-ground exploration has expanded geographically (Croatia, Argentina, China) and intensified locally, with the activities of the Compass Group in the Midwest (such as Southwest Corridor Northwest Passage).
