"A WORLD MAP: in which we see..." is a conceptual mapping project about globalization, its processes and forces. Mapping concepts and discourses rather specific geographies, it traces how, as a supra-national system of economies, laws and institutions, globalization builds itself upon the exclusion of certain persons and how prisoners and refugees, by rendering them "without rights," are then used to fill these excluded positions.

The project includes the production of an ongoing video archive which helps to ground the concepts represented in the map in specific local contexts and situations (coming soon to the website).

The project is installed as a drawing or painting in local exhibition contexts or public spaces, with the assistance of local artists, students and activists who participate in conversations about the map's concepts throughout the installation process. Please email to find out how the project can be brought to your community.
