Translating Cities: representing urban spaces in contemporary art maps

Abstract : This paper will present a project that investigates how cities are perceived and represented in contemporary art maps. The research approaches current mapping practices through interviews with artists, enquiring how they apprehend, process and recreate urban spaces. Our focus is on the performative dimensions of art maps rather than their representational aspects, and their capacity to reshape territories along imaginary geographies. We will discuss the map as practice that can unfold personal and collective narratives, contestation and play. Four art maps produced for the city of Liverpool after 2008 will illustrate our discussion of how contemporary art works can be related to traditional and non-traditional cartographies and how they contribute to engage on new ways of understanding, experiencing and imagining cities.
