Workshop: MAPPING FOR CHANGE? Understanding Critical Cartographies that influence Urban Transformation
6-7 June 2019, at K LAB, TU-Berlin.
The goal of this workshop was to exchange ideas on how to see and design mapping processes beyond binaries, through landscapes, and across literacies and mediums. We also questioned what skilling means in critical mapping, what it requires, and how mapping can be seen less as “sketching” (recording and categorizing data) and more as “crafting,” a sensorial performance. We exchanged opinions on how such skilling in and practices of mapping can depend on two key procedural features: first, slow time that nurtures values and inner compasses (keyword 1: tacit knowledge); and second, the essentiality of embeddedness in the social for engendering intersectional knowledge (keyword 2: dialectic laboring). We will elaborate on these keywords in the latter two entries of station*two_situating mapping as craft*ing.
