Call for Papers

Art and Cartography Symposium
12 February 2008, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria

The International Cartographic Association is forming a new working group on Art and Cartography. It proposes to foster closer collaborations between artists and cartographers. The symposium will bring-together practicing artists, architects and cartographers and those involved in research and education in the fields.

We therefore seek contributions from Cartography and the Arts addressing the topics of:

Maps as artistic artefacts
- aspects of artistic and graphical expressions with and through maps in cartography (contemporary and historic),

Explorations of different interpretations of space and place using New Media and experimental art forms
- depicting space with narratives, paintings, graphics, sound, animations, installations, time based media and other non-traditional cartographic artefacts.

As well as written papers contributions are also encouraged as posters, installations, artwork, film, video, web applications and experimental media.

Send your short abstract (1-2 pages) or description before October 1st, 2007 as a .doc-file to or

Symposium Proceedings will include papers and annotated catalogue entries. It is also proposed, that a book will ensue.

Organisers: William Cartwright, Georg Gartner and Antje Lehn.
