In her talk, Lize Mogel will discuss her artistic practice of “counter-cartography,” in which she uses maps and mapping to challenge the mainstream narrative of a site or its history from a political or activist perspective. Counter-mapping uses cartographic conventions - including data, images, and language - to analyze and represent power dynamics, as part of a collective effort working towards social change. Mogel’s installation "Area of Detail," examines the political and legal implications of an increasingly ice-free Arctic Ocean in a changing climate.
