Un Punto Cualquiera Situado hacia el Medio (A Random Point Located towards the Middle)

An opportunity to share the experience of a workshop on Maps as instruments of (dis)orientation led in the School of Arts SUR from 2016 to 2020. Departing from the words from Franz Kafka, «las cosas que se me ocurren no se me presentan por su raíz, sino por un punto cualquiera situado hacia el medio», which were used to launch the mapping processes of the students, I proposed a reflection on the amplitude of the idea of map. Going beyond the map as piece of paper fixed on representation to include instead all kind of instruments able to trace and orient us in a given material or immaterial territory, we saw getting lost is sometimes really useful in educational settings to create fertile new balances.
