Abstract or Description

This chapter draws on the Zapatista's slogan 'Asking, We Walk', the ancient 'right to ramble' in the UK, and an archive of walks through the muddled jurisdictions of Southwark in South London, to propose practices of walking and asking not as cartographic gestures, but as part of the production of constituent power. Moving away from the notion of political constituency as an electoral unit that counts bodies within a given territory, the chapter proposes a more dynamic notion of constituency composed simultaneously of bodies, knowledge and questions on the move.
