Drawing a ‘New Map’ within Critical Cartography

Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon (CCW)

How can artists use drawing to create a ‘new map’ that deconstructs and re-evaluates the notion of territorial borders? This practice-based research is situated at the convergence between ‘critical cartography’ that links geographic knowledge with political power, and drawing practice. It aims;

1) to make a new contribution to the field of critical cartography, focusing on current border issues (e.g. ‘borderless world’, Ohmae 1999, ‘unstable territory’, Guadagnini and Nori 2014)

and;

2) to reassert the importance of drawing, as both analytical and creative practice.
