Alternative Mapping (RHB 137)

The session will explore our drive to ‘make sense’ of things we know and those we don’t. Starting from the very notion of curating as: organising / scouting / selecting / taking care of / making space for / creating links between, I have developed over the last couple of years a pinterest stream that attempts to ‘map the mapping’: http://www.pinterest.com/alcramer/alternative-mapping/. There are about 330 ‘alternative maps’ on this stream – from the downright bizarre obsession to the most thorough and scientific charting approach one can think of; from kitchen utensils to animal tracks. The session will open up a discussion about our drive to map, need to map, desire to map and, ultimately, what is mapping all about: has the map exceed (finally!) the territory? Has the mapping outgrown the mappable?

Whence the Future? – lecture by Alfredo Cramerotti

Alfredo Cramerotti (MOSTYN ǀ Wales) will deliver a lecture on the idea of time, knowledge and future.  Following a text co-authored with Jean-Paul Martinon (Goldsmiths College, University of London) and published in ‘The Curatorial. A Philosophy of Curating’ (Bloosmbury, 2013), Cramerotti asks us to abandon our androids, tablets, computers in order to rethink how the future comes?  His reply is that it comes from the immemorial past that old stories (for instance, in newspapers) always seem to hold ready for us to discover.  Once opened, the work then consists in curating for ourselves our own future.  With Cramerotti, the curatorial knowledge becomes the way in which the future is articulated.

The lecture will be held in English.
