Dublin: What Can We See? What Do We Want?

Anthony Cullen Tours

On this tour, participants will be led around three significant historic locations in Dublin, touching on themes of ownership and construction of the city. The aim of this transitionary experience is to move away from the standardised format of mediated tours, and towards an open discussion of one of the largest infrastructures around us, the city of Dublin itself.

The environment created on the tour is intended to be an opportunity towards realisation of desires in relation to the City. The guide has equipped themselves to facilitate discussion, about the city’s future and the willingness to act on those desires.

The three locations have been chosen specifically due to their socio-political histories. The locations are; Dubh Linn on the grounds of Dublin Castle, the viking settlement marked out in stone beside The Dublin City Council and the old City Wall on Oliver Bond Street leading to St Audoen’s Park.

The tour will be led by Anthony Cullen (, an artist who is interested in testing and exploring the structures and systems around us with the aim of understanding ourselves by our responses to these structures.
