Ecstatic Archive presents new work from Gerhard Marx, who engaged with a series of discarded and decommissioned cartographic archives.
Through acts of fragmentation, rupture, transplantation, migration, agglomeration and collage, Marx disrupts the boundaries of the maps to investigate the formal and fictive possibilities of perspective. Marx’s meticulously constructed, impossible geometries take inspiration from the spatial implications and contradictions of the globalised world. The result are maps in which geographies and time periods are conflated, distances collapse, there is here, then is now, and everything is everywhere.
Coffee and croissants are available at the event.
