MAPPING: SPACE AND ACTION
TRIALOG’s annual meeting 2017 “Mapping: Space and Action”
Friday, 1 December 2017, 9:00-18:00 hs
For more than a decade now, mapping has become an acknowledged instrument of research, analysis and diffusion of expert as well as everyday life knowledge in the planning and social sciences. Mappings of various nature and at various scales—from wide-span global relations to individual behaviour and movement patterns in local contexts—offer an interdisciplinary approach, open to artistic interpretations, to the paradigm of space and have relevantly expanded cartography’s understanding and practice.
Thereby, mapping is gaining popularity also beyond the scientific field. On the one hand, “mapping from below” and “community mapping” are being applied both in formal planning processes of neighbourhoods, cities, landscapes or even regions (in these cases, practitioners speak of participation or participatory moments) and in more radical self-organised processes initiated by inhabitants. On the other hand, artists adopting cartographic approaches are increasingly challenging one-sided interpretations and traditional applications.
During the conference, questions shall be tackled such as:
When and how is mapping an appropriate research instrument, and how can it be used in artistic fields?
