research by walking is a curatorial project developed by Alba Colomo during her residency at Het Wilde Weten in Rotterdam. It centers on the role of artists in the social transformation of the South of Rotterdam - a zone with a large presence of 'creative professionals' - and on how this relates to the urban development policies of the local institutions. The high concentration of artists - and the acclaimed 'creative class' - that live and work in this part of the city, seems to be one of the strategies employed by the local authorities to regenerate the socio-economic environment of the area.
