Welcome to the Institute of Cartopology! This online platform is set up to archive, activate but for mostly to share knowledge about Cartopology.
The online platform is under construction but will be online soon!
‘The everyday’ takes place.
Cartopology questions the role of ‘place’ in ‘the everyday’ and the role ‘the everyday’ gets attributed to in existing spatial notation systems – such as, for example, the architectural floor plan.
The ‘everyday’ is not immediately written down or told but is rather hidden in locations and is often overlooked. The cartopological map acts as a research instrument to explore and document ‘place’ and ‘the everyday’. Cartopological maps are made during fieldwork and guide the intensive participant-observations. They join cartographic maps containing ‘place’ with drawings and writings of ‘the everyday’ and they embrace the chaotic research process.
Building the Institute of Cartopology is a process whereby certain forms of the cartopological map and the behaviour of the cartopologist are identified and recognised as valuable artistic research.
