Manifesto

  • Art in cartography means much more than designing aesthetically pleasing maps;
  • In this context art covers all forms of artistic expressions;
  • Cartographers, artists, researchers from the humanities need to work collaboratively in order to redefine the contours of the relationships between arts and cartography;
  • Real interdisciplinary activities call for special measures (e.g. develop a common language and a mutual understanding);
  • In the first place, time is required in order to build solid bridges between cartography and the arts;
  • Therefore, we want to promote a slow publication philosophy (focusing more on quality/diversity than on quantity);
  • We also want to promote diversity in terms of activities and outcomes (e.g. festivals, public lectures, performances, exhibitions, screenings, etc.)
