Extra Large Drawing Chair with Nephtys Zwer

Tuesday 3 May 2022

7:00pm - 8:00pm

Amphithéâtre du mûrier

14 rue Bonaparte, 75006 Paris


A specialist in the work of Otto Neurath and the graphic information system Isotype, researcher in the history and culture of German-speaking countries Nepthys Zwer joined the independent research group visionscarto in 2018. She analyzes the cartographic image in terms of its creative gesture, its form, and its social function: what intentions command the graphic choices of cartographers in their formulation of a statement about the "reality" of the physical world? Do the schematic layout, design, semiology and syntax of the map belong to a "visual language"? Finally, how does the cartographic message participate in the construction of knowledge and why does it have a political dimension? She will present her latest book Cartographie radicale. Explorations, which she co-authored for Carré/La Découverte.

In the framework of the Chaire Dessin Extra-Large, coordinated by Barbara Soyer and realized with the support of the Maison Chaumet.
