Baadlands: an Atlas of Experimental Cartography brings together a series of projects that use mapping as a way of revealing, challenging or engaging with the politics of space in a globalized world. The exhibition focuses on a series of undeveloped, unused or mythological locations that often appear as empty or blank spots on conventional maps. Probing beyond this opaque exterior the exhibition invites viewers to consider new ways of seeing and thinking about the space we live in.
