Géographie Subjective

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.


After the maps made in Saint-Gilles and in the City of Brussels, Catherine Jourdan will lead a workshop with inhabitants and workers of Anderlecht.
