About the Lecture

De-colonizing the Map

Reconstructing the map beyond Cartesian planes of conquest and property, pinning down fallacies of space and time, the presentation shares a practice that negotiates between collaboration with community-based partners and the studio, data and the limits and possibilities of language, research and reflection.
