Abstract

Since the 1960s contemporary visual artists have increasingly been using maps and mapping
strategies in their work as part of a post-modern idiom. The ‘expanded field’ started to define
both arts practice and theory with ideas, which are traditionally geographical terms; notions of
space, place and site. Artists creating work informed by the locale, has turned artists into
producers of new knowledge of makers of alternative forms of data, and this has been a key
factor in the changing field of geography itself (Hawkins, 2014). This chapter will explore how
and why artists across the world use maps and mapping and where this trend in mapping in art
is heading.
