Without Geography You are Nowhere\Everywhere.

Curatorial Maps is a collaborative platform that brings together women/women identifying photographers and curators with the objective of recreating a map of contemporary photography made by women.

Curatorial Maps wants to promote the work of both artists and curators, by fostering collaborations and offering a new point of view on the curatorial work and challenges related to this role.

When we feel lost in the space we turn to maps, almost looking for a divine sign in them. However, the geographical maps we have seen and studied in school represent a subjective vision of the world. We saw the world the way it appears in the hemisphere we belong.
For Europeans the center of the universe was Europe, as for Americans was the United States, and so on.
We can notice this even more when we analyze Mercatore and Peters’ different map projections. But a map represents a story, a hierarchy, a collision between closeness and distance, foreign and familiar, and it brings with it omessages and significants that determine how much our own vision of the world compares with the world itself.

The first Chapter Without Geography You Are Nowhere\Everywhere focuses on the theme of geography.
Irene Tondelli, project founder and curator and Davida Carta, founder and curator of Under- Exposed Magazine introduce a selection of photographers that contribuite to this theme in various and unique ways.

The term Geography stretches into the intimate, physical, political, identity, literary, imaginary. Aspects that mix together as to form mountains, lakes, rivers, and most of all a new experience of the world, where the viewer can create his own path and vision, freely and responsibly. What Geography is important to you, in order to redefine a new map of the world?
