psychogeographical map

In this workshop with guest teacher Sine Lindholm, the student at architecture has worked on a large “psycho-geographical” map of Krabbesholm. The workshop is based on and inspired by the Situationists. The Situationists stood for a freedom-oriented, left-wing critique of society in the 1950s-60s. This workshop is based on the idea that a map and mapping is not only about measurable units, but is to a large extent a subjective interpretation. The process is inspired by an early project that the situationists had devoted themselves to and which they called dérive, which can be translated as “driving around”, in the urban landscape to see how the different urban environments affect moods. During the hikes, they talked to each other about how they experienced different things, and in a way this also became an instrument for analysing oneself. The students have created a psychogeographic map, which tells a story about Krabbesholm, and which replaces the measurable reality with our subjective experience. Fragments of the school is mixed with each other to leave a dynamic expression. The workshop has consisted of several parts, which give the map collective information, which together form a basis for drawing a generalisation about which ‘personality traits’ Krabbesholm consists of.
