The map, as it appears in Gilles Deleuze’s writings, is a concept guiding the exploration of new territories, no matter how abstract. Deleuze and the Map-Image explores cartography from philosophical and aesthetic perspectives and argues that the concept of the map is a critical touchstone for contemporary multidisciplinary art.
