a guided walk through an imagined city

New Russias Festival, Manchester

february 2020 ​


A walk through Manchester as imagined by Russians who have never been here; an invitation to walk, stop, listen, and look at the city through someone else's eyes. I asked people from Russia, who have never been to Manchester, to record a description of how they imagine Manchester and to take a photo of something that corresponds to that description in their home cities. You can go on a walk around Manchester and listen to those descriptions, merging the real and the imagined city. ​
