Cartographic Agency / Agencia Cartográfica

Cartographic Agency

A map outline of the city was silk-screened on large sheets of paper. The maps were distributed through the public library system so that  people can fill in the maps with their own interpretations of the city, “comuna”, neighborhood, or landscape, in order to reveal the forms and patterns that express personal geography in relation to power, inclusion, exclusion, “invisible barriers”, agency, discriminatory practices, or social commentary. The results form a Cartographic Agency that reveals personal maps as a means of understanding the social context of the city. Ultimately between 20 – 40  maps were displayed inside the gallery of the Museum of Antioqiua.
