Aus der Welt gefallen. Eine geographische Phantasie

Author(s): Struck, Wolfgang


While, during the 19th century, the ›white spots‹ disappear from the maps, a peculiar figure appears in the geographical imagination: the figure of a researcher who has been lost. However, the disappearance takes place under observation, it is organized in narratives and maps, it is inscribed in protocols that make the disappearance perceptible and simultaneously form the perception of a homogeneous geographical space and the conditions of its representation.
