The cartographic imagery in contemporary art
The cartographic imagery in contemporary art in times of globalization in which territories, identities and cultures have uncertain boundaries, the term cartography refers to concepts that go beyond the mere literal representation of a territory. In this sense, contemporary art has used cartography to map imagined or mental maps and, with them, has provided cartographic representations of multiple meanings in new contexts.
