Cartography Between Art, Science and Politics: an open door to manipulation or a tool for resisting power? There is no such thing as an innocent map...
There is no such thing as an innocent map... A fusion of disciplines: cartography has since long been torn between science and art. Both scientists and artists have claimed ownership of the discipline. This dispute will never been solved because of the very complexity of what a map really is: it uses data that has to be handled scientifically, it uses forms, colours, movements, in other words "artistic means" and so the same material has to be also handled artistically and aesthetically. All together, to produce a vision of the world as seen by the cartographer — an image which represents a specific position i.e. the way the cartographers sees, understands and interprets the world. In this respect, the map is fundamentally a political object. It certainly has nothing to do with Reality, the Truth. This dynamic is an open door to manipulation and the use of the cartographic image as a propaganda tool, both from the dictator’s point of view as well as that of the activist. The map is a dialogue between reality and imaginary, taken in consideration that what is represented on a map has its roots in the reality, but like a fictional movie, it is deeply romanticized. It never represents reality, only the way we interpret it. The map is therefore an intellectual construction.    
In this hands-on mapping workshop we will create maps of personal knowledge (e.g. personal itineraries, common perceptions, fears, etc.).
