As an invitation to explore the all-encompassing term textit{visualization} from a new vantage point, this book suggests a topological approach to identify individual domains in the global stream of visualization practices and intentions. Here, particular and often hidden, partly non-visual or non-visible forms emerge as individual, distinct modes of visualizing that go beyond infographics as the idea informing most of the today understanding of visualization. These modes offer frames in which to put the phenomenon of visualization with a view to notions more appropriate to the plurality of its manifestations.

Erna Fiorentini is Extraordinary Professor of Art History and academic staff member at the IKB – Institute for the History of Art and Architecture of the KIT – Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Karlsruhe, Germany.
