Cartographic abstraction in contemporary art : seeing with maps Hardback
Part of the Routledge Advances in Art and Visual Studies series
In this book, Claire Reddleman introduces her theoretical innovation "cartographic abstraction" - a material modality of thought and experience that is produced through cartographic techniques of depiction.
Reddleman closely engages with selected artworks (by contemporary artists such as Joyce Kozloff, Layla Curtis, and Bill Fontana) and theories in each chapter.
Reconfiguring the Foucauldian underpinning of critical cartography towards a materialist theory of abstraction, cartographic viewpoints are theorised as concrete abstractions.
This research is positioned at the intersection of art theory, critical cartography and materialist philosophy.
