A WORLD MAP: in Which We See...
is a conceptual mapping project about globalization, its processes and forces. Mapping concepts and discourses rather than 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 specifically how prisoners and refugees, as they are rendered “without rights,” are used to fill these excluded positions and make globalization what it is.
The project includes the production of an ongoing Video Library which helps to ground the concepts represented in the map in specific local contexts and situations.
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, as a starting point for local research. Please email to find out how the project can be brought to your community.
