Index 19: Oskar Karlin

2 November 2016, 19:00–22:00

Osakr Karlin: Never Ending Drawing, since 2000

In his presentation, Oskar Karlin will discuss practical aspects of map making, and how space is represented through maps. Using Open Street Map (OSM) as an example and a tool, Karlin will look into political implications and activist mapping. OSM is a collaborative project that aims to create a free editable map of the world. In response to restrictions on use of map information, it is a prominent example of volunteered geographic information that also supports humanitarian work, for example with the Humanitarian Open Street Map Team (HOT).

Oskar Karlin is a cartographer, amongst other things.

The event is part of the exhibition program Mad Horizon by John Skoog and Emanuel Röhss.
