Interesting series of essays on various counter mapping projects -- counter mapping, if you're not familiar with the term, being mapmaking repurposed for usually political or activist agenda, the idea behind it being that maps are ordinarily subjective documents with agendas, usually made by those in positions of power, that masquerade as objective fact. Much of the content is preaching to the choir, but it's all about how the information is presented, and a lot of that is very interesting. Sometimes if feels like so much really useful activism is stuck in a closed circuit, and this collaboration with artists, designers, and cartographers jogs a lot of the polemic -- about immigration, land use, poverty, and civic issues -- out of its existing ruts. Some neat stuff, short and sharp. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979137721, Paperback)

An Atlas of Radical Cartography makes an important contribution to a growing cultural movement that traverses the boundaries between art, cartography, geography and activism. It pairs writers with artists, architects, designers and collectives to address the role of the map as political agent (rather than neutral document). Ten mapping projects dealing with social and political issues such as migration, incarceration, globalization, housing rights, garbage and energy issues are complemented by 10 critical essays and dialogues responding to each map. The maps themselves are printed as posters, unbound for leisurely perusal. Among the contributors are artists Trevor Paglen, John Emerson, Ashley Hunt and Pedro Lasch and essayists Avery Gordon, Heather Rogers, Alejandro De Acosta and Jenny Price. An Atlas of Radical Cartography also serves as a catalogue to the exhibition An Atlas, which has been touring the United States and internationally since July of 2007.
