In the last years the concept of Geography undergoes a fundamental transformation. The increasing circulation of people, goods, and data create new cultural, social, and virtual landscapes, which can not be described by traditional geo-scientific categories.
This publication documents projects of five international art collectives, which pursue questions of global migration, changing work enviroments, and worldwide informationssystems and outline alternative models for a new geographic praxis. Art scientist Irit Rogoff, Brian Holmes and Lisa Parks critically enlight in their theoretical essays the metapher of “Geography” towards a new level of knowledge.
