CARTOGRAPHIC IMAGINARY II
About imagined maps in Contemporary Art
Contemporary art has used maps and mapping in general, to design new spaces and re- define limits by blurring boundaries and plotting new ones. In this sense,by using cartography, artists not only perform a critical geopolitics but, adopting the notion of mapping, also reflect on the limits and dimensions of their own artistic practices in a changing world.
