a temporary city to discuss the (im)possibilities of mapping

Friday 20th and
Saturday 21st of August

Since the earth is sphere-shaped, mapping and surveying it by using a two-dimensional grid (e.g. on paper) is impossible. As a result, the lines of the grid fail to match in some places. Correctionville is such a place in Iowa in the United States and important to surveyors in the mid 19th century.

Maps are never as accurate as they suggest and are always incomplete. It is futile to strive for completeness and reality. However, the more interesting is the use of maps to discover and understand a place.

Correctionville aims to:
Explore knowledge about cartopology;
Gather cartopologists and;
Share cartopological maps.

Correctionville will focus on the cartopological craft by facilitating workplaces and dealing with documentation and observation techniques through workshops. Lectures will be organized to further explore the theoretical cartopological framework. You can also meet other cartopologists, chat over coffee or challenge each other during the open hours. Last but not least, there will be a focus on cartopological methods that you can explore together or just peek at from the sidelines. There is also a shop with cartopological classics, cahiers and suitable drawing materials. Like any city, Correctionville is open to initiative and happy to support it? So, do you have ideas or questions, get in touch via: marlies.vermeulen@cartopology.institute.
