Boghossian Foundation is pleased to present the fascinating exhibition 'Mappa mundi' exploring the different ways artists represent the world. Representation of the world is a practical and scientific necessity, both in the past and still today; one which allows us to comprehend our geography, whether it is near or distant, and which provides a source of reverie, inviting us to dream of travels and the fantastical. Contemporary artists are also captivated by world maps, which many of them reinvent and transform. The artists find each map’s potential – not only geographical but also political, poetic or utopian. Completed by a selection of ancient maps and literary translations, the exhibition brings together more than thirty contemporary artists from across the world and reunites them around a theme rich in meanings, the map being for the artists a pretext for all sorts of comments on contemporary society, power relations, ecology, conflicts, etc.
