Between the Map and the Territory

exhibition: 06 / 09 / 2012 - 05 / 11 / 2012

Between the Map and the Territory is an exhibition inspired by the novel The Map and the Territory by the French author Michel Houellebecq. The title is derived from the statement by linguist Alfred Korzybski, "The map is not the territory". The map-area relationship describes the impossible relationship between a location and the representation of that location, such as the relationship between a city and its map.

With Bik Van der Pol, Maaike Gouwenberg & Joris Lindhout, Karin Hueber, Anna Okrasko, Elian Somers, Emily Whitebread.
