Imaginary Geography

Tampere Museums Vapriikki, Tampere

  • 9.6.2022–18.9.2022

Maps can be used to visualise far away, unknown areas. However, not all maps deal with the real world – they can also be made of imaginary places. Imaginary geography is an exhibition on maps made for Finnish games.

 

They are all imaginary in one way or another, as a map can take its viewer on an armchair trip to a multitude of locations – the nearby orienteering grounds or an entirely imaginary world.

The exhibition displays maps used in games over a period of 150 years. Historically, it has been a common practice to use a map of Finland of a specific locality as the basis for the game board. On the other hand, the game map may describe an entirely imaginary landscape or a locality that simply feels real enough to exist in real life. Furthermore, it is not only the game designers who draw maps – the players are also avid cartographers. Which imaginary world did you last visit through a map?
