|Inhalt||This course explores the past, present, and future of mapping across a range of geographic, political, cultural contexts. Maps reveal, delimit, confirm, navigate, historicize, erase, anticipate, persuade, and, sometimes, even lie. Far from a scientific reading of mapping as an objective representation of a stable reality, we explore the myriad of ways in which historical legacies of colonialism and imperialism continue to shape our gaze of the urban landscape—affecting our normative, political and personal considerations of the relations among subjects, objects and spaces.
The course begins with a critical theoretical examination of how maps can be understood as instruments of violence and terrains of power. We explore the historical matrix within which mapping developed by looking at the epistemologies of various types of spatial and temporal maps produced that represent colonized, occupied and otherwise marginalized frontiers and experiences. Our discussions also actively engage with resistances to this practice in the form of other traditions of mapping, including counter-cartographic contestations that make visible otherwise marginal experiences and hidden histories of violence.
While considering the social relevance, politics and ethics of mapping, course participants will also engage in a practical aspect of critical cartography. Starting from the power relations in our own urban context in the city of Basel, students will learn various hands-on techniques and technologies for mapping local relations in space and time. Experimenting with a range of critical mapping tools and interdisciplinary methods—including fieldwork, archival research, visual and material analysis and remote sensing—we will together develop creative techniques to produce and represent alternative urban landscapes and overlapping cartographies.
|Lernziele|| - Examining the history and practice of mapping as a relation of domination.
