An Atlas of Radical Cartography is a collection of ten maps and ten essays about social issues from globalization to garbage; surveillance to extraordinary rendition; statelessness to visibility; deportation to migration. The map is inherently political-and the contributions to this book wear their politics on their sleeves. The atlas provides a critical foundation for an area of work that bridges art/design, cartography/geography and activism. The maps and essays in this book provoke new understandings of networks and representations of power and its effects on people and places. These new perceptions of the world are the prerequisites of social change.
This publication includes a book of ten essays and a set of ten 17×22 inch maps/posters.
