A "subjective" map is a map created by a group of inhabitants, through workshops led by Catherine Jourdan, psychologist and documentary artist.
This map represents a group's vision of its own territory, of the city at a given time. It is not based on actual data (such as distance, arrangement and social function of a territory ...) but rather on the impressions of inhabitants.
Snapshot of the city, the subjective map is a pretext to tell others about its neighborhoud, its territory, its paths. Speaking about the self and the other, the map tells and imagines a singular way to live a territory together.
This is about highlighting a sensitive geography, perfectly accurate or inaccurate, independent, personal and collective, and make it public through a map which will then be printed and made public in the city communication spaces.
Catherine Jourdan will lead two workshops with inhabitants of Neder-Over-Hembeek and Laeken.
7 > 12 December 2015
This workshop is adressed to inhabitants of Neder-Over-Hembeek
18 > 22 January 2015
This workshop is adressed to inhabitants of Laeken
Dates to be confirmed.
Encounters/exchanges between both groups will be organised, dates to be yet determined.
Following these workshops, Catherine Jourdan will gather visions and ideas of both groups to achieve a common map which will then be printed and posted in various places of the City.
