Landscape

The term landscape, derived from the sixteenth-century Dutch word landschap, was originally used for the demarcation of land but has subsequently become associated with a way of seeing space from a distance.


The term landscape, derived from the sixteenth-century Dutch word landschap, was originally used for the demarcation of land but has subsequently become associated with a way of seeing space from a distance. This sense of landscape as a visual panorama — developing initially through landscape art — has subsequently expanded and diversified in the modern era to include a variety of urban and industrial spaces and their representations in art, cinema and literature. To what extent does our concept of landscape determine how we experience these spaces and representations? What happens when we see and experience a landscape?

Helping us explore the topic for the evening is Matthew Gandy, an urbanist who writes about cities, landscapes and nature and teaches in the UCL Department of Geography.
