Loitering With Intent

Loitering With Intent 'The Art & Politics Of Walking' is a group exhibition by The Loiterers Resistance Movement, a loose collective of artists interested and inspired by the ideas of psychogeography and the 'derive' (or drifts).

To celebrate 10 years of the LRM they held a series of events at The People's History Museum (from July 23rd - October 14th). My contribution to the exhibition was a selection of images from the day that the Reclaim The Streets protest took over the Mancunian Way in Hulme in 1999. The rest of the photos from that day can be found in this gallery

The LRM manifesto sates: "We cannot agree upon what psychogeography means but we all like plants growing out of the sides of buildings, looking at things from new angles, radical history, drinking tea and getting lost. Gentrification, advertising and blandness makes us sad. We believe there is magic in the Mancunian rain. Our city is wonderful and made for more than shopping. The streets belong to everyone and we reclaim them for play and revolutionary fun."
