artifact description
Another Atlas builds on the work of Lize Mogel and Alexis Bhagat's 2007 compendium of cartographic investigations into power, networks and social justice. The book and subsequent touring exhibition brought together work from artists, designers, geographers and activists all focusing on the role mapping has in our shared social structures. The different works lead to questions of; Who has the right to map? What do they have the right to map? How mapping changes our world. Each of the artists selected represent ways information can be gathered and how forms of mapping can be challenged.
