Writing Over is a drawing atlas which focuses on the relationship between the gestures of drawing, writing and map-making. The book serves as companion volume to the installation Writing Over, which was shown in 2012 at Netwerk in Aalst. The draw­ings which are partly derived from a personal and collective history are rendered in different types of landscapes and maps. These are accompanied by an Atlas Archive; a study of surfaces used in this carto­graphic process – sketches, stamps, media images, engraving plates, notations – as well as a short story by Louis Lüthi, entitled Unalaska Alaska, which was written especially for this occasion.
