啟德濱地圖考:藝術地圖學與視覺考古
東九龍空間展現工作坊及展覽
(English version)

「地圖不過是另一層,置於千重人類在土地上的地理歷史之上的印記」
-藝術家Richard Long

從華人精英何啟與區德命名與規劃啟德濱伊始,由該處延展開去的東九龍,是香港城市蜿蜒歷史的重要部份。近年東九龍的規劃與再生,更一直處於現在進行式。本已豐富混雜的歷史、建築空間與社會關係,將在不久的將來重新組合,轉折之際,正是捕光捉影的契機。

啟德濱地圖考將讓參加者以地圖作為方法,研討與學習製作非一般的地圖,以呈現一處地方所承載的無窮訊息與故事。地圖不單可以啟發群眾的空間想像,愈來愈多藝術家更視地圖本身為藝術形式。工作坊將由精於此道的藝術家帶領,與參加者共同行走,為東九龍創作別具一格的地圖,展現這片都市空間的繁花千相。

本活動由Hong Kong Urban Laboratory與Roundtable Cultural Collective合辦,屬於2011 – 2012 香港.深圳城市\建築雙城雙年展之社區活動。

Mapping ‘Kai Tak Bund’: creative cartography and visual archeology
Workshop and art exhibition on the spatial representation of Kowloon East

“A map is just one more layer, a mark laid down upon thousands of other layers of human geographic history on the surface of the land” 
- Richard Long
, artist

Since Chinese colonial elites Ho Kai and Au Tak named and planned Kai Tak Bund, the extended urban area of Kowloon East has been a core terrain where the fascinating history of Hong Kong unfolds. In recent years, new plans for the rebirth and transformation of Kowloon East have been proposed. Already hybrid and heterogeneous, the history, built environments and social relations of the district will be furthered in flux and refashioned in the near future. This juncture of transition is a great chance to remind us the importance of capturing the rich textures of Kowloon East.

Mapping Kai Tak Bung invites participants to use maps as their methods to represent the tremendous amount of datas and the stories contained by a place, they will study and learn ways to produce alternative maps. Maps do not only inspire popular spatial imaginations, they are also seen by many artists as an art form in itself. The Workshop will be led by artists who treat mapping as an artistic way to approach urban space, participants will talk with the artists and create unique and creative maps. The maps altogether will form a multi-faceted picture of Kowloon East’s multiple layers of geographical history.

The programme is co-curated by Hong Kong Urban Laboratory and Roundtable Cultural Collective. It is a part of the 2011-2012 Hong Kong-Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture.
